Why did you decide to study abroad?

I’ve always wanted to travel and see the world and learn about a country’s history while actually being there. Study abroad was the perfect option for me to do that.

Why do you think it’s important to study abroad?

I think it’s important to put yourself out there and challenge yourself. You never know what you’re able to accomplish if you don’t try anything outside your comfort zone.

Any tips for students interested in studying abroad?

Any worry you have while you’re in the process of applying, or actually abroad, will disappear. Also, the people met and memories made while studying abroad will exceed the money it cost.
