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?

When I was a senior in high school, I went on my school's Europe trip where I traveled all across France and Italy. I absolutely fell in love with traveling and knew instantly that I wanted to do more if it. It was then that I decided I wanted to study abroad in college. I knew it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in another country and travel to amazing places.

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.

Being abroad helped me develop more empathy and understanding for other cultures. There are many social, political, and societal things that shape a country and its citizens and I think it's important as an American to understand this and realize how unique every country of the world is.
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.
