I studied abroad twice, once in the Netherlands and once in Italy. Both times I studied each country’s signed languages, which will help me be more qualified as an ASL interpreter and make me a more attractive employee. With this experience, I will also have travel work opportunities.

I made lifelong friends most of whom I am still in touch with today. I tune into Australian news online because I find it intriguing and funny. I learned new marketing trends that I was exposed to when I was abroad before it even trended in the US. Also, when I was down in Brisbane, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was filming down at the Gold Coast! How cool is that?

Study Abroad in Three Words: Will always recommend
Being abroad makes me want to continue to be involved with the global community. I want to continue to see more and more of the world, as well as being actively involved in contributing to the technology that connects everyone despite the distance.
My experience has personally solidified how much value I place on the inclusion of working internationally in whatever job I take post-graduation. It opened my eyes to seeing how affordable and possible life abroad truly is.

My mind is always focused on being aware of the issues in the world and where I want to travel next to gain new and meaningful life experiences. Being immersed in new cultures and learning through different perspectives can be so enlightening and eye-opening. I've always known I want to study abroad, I just needed to go for it!
