Memorable Experience:
One of my greatest memories from my experience abroad was when I ventured with a group to the Amazon Rainforest. I learned so much from just being in a purely natural environment that was completely "off the grid" and distant from civilization. It was a great way to learn about myself and the world around me.

Benefits of Studying Abroad:
There are many benefits to studying abroad, such as experiencing another culture, become more independent, and meeting new people. The most important I thing, though, is that you get to stop, think about, and view everything that you have learned from a different perspective and find out more about yourself. Going abroad has sparked my new interest in traveling and it has also broadened my taste buds. Academically, it has given me a clearer path for what I want and what I want to achieve.

Advice & Tips:
If any part of you thinks that studying abroad is something that you would consider, then do it! I promise you won't regret it. The hardest part is deciding where in the world you want to go and what kind of lifestyleDar you want to experience.
