When I was considering postsecondary institutions, I was looking for one that could potentially allow me to study abroad. Once the opportunity to go abroad came up, my friends and family encouraged me to take the big step and go for it!
I gained a good connection with my professors and peers. Having the same professors every day for 4 weeks, you get to see the real person. The professors I had, helped me change for the better. In class it was about being open and being comfortable enough to be able to ask more questions without any judgement. With my peers I was able to gain a strong bond with them by having the time to not only study together but be able to get to know each other in a short period of time.
Going on exchange has impacted my life because I can say I am the first person in my family to study in a different county. I am grateful for the connections I made and friendships from all over the world.
