Memorable Experience:
I can't pick just one - meeting celebrities at the BRITs red carpet, sitting in the third row at a concert at the O2 Arena, visiting the free museums, and breakfasts at my favorite cafe were all some of the best parts of my time in London.

Benefits of Studying Abroad:
Studying abroad helped me learn more about who I am and what I want out of life. It forced me to grow up and become independent in a way my semesters at St. Norbert hadn't. Living in the most diverse city in the world made me more culturally aware and expanded my horizons. Professionally, I feel as if my newly acquired people skills, as well as my newfound ability to adapt and make the best of tough situations, will help me in the classroom as a teacher.

Advice & Tips:
Just do it and don't think twice. Whatever you think is standing in the way of you studying abroad, I promise there is a solution. Don't automatically think you aren't the right "fit" to study abroad - as an introvert and a homebody, I never thought in a million years I'd be the type of person to go, but I did and it was the best decision of my life. Also, do your research to find the right program - I changed my destination two times before I found the right fit. And most importantly, if you do go, try really hard to savor each and every day, even if you're not doing anything "exciting" and just walking around the city. The time goes by faster than you'd think!
