Study abroad was a really good learning experience. I came out of it a much more confident person. I felt more adult, more grown up. I learned a lot about myself and other cultures, languages, and people. I made a lot of friends and got to travel to some of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Studying abroad was a great way to learn how to adapt to a new place, become independent, and make new friends. It taught me so much about myself and helped me decide that living and working internationally was possible. I highly recommend the experience because you learn more when you are out of your comfort zone.
