Why did you choose your program? I have always wanted to study abroad ever since I was young. There is an entire world outside of where we live or where we are from; I decided to study abroad to broaden my horizon and experience other cultures in the world around me.

Favorite story: One of my favorite stories from abroad is when I attended my first traditional Moroccan party with a gnawa band. My host family and friends were there, and as soon as I walked in the party one of the band members grabbed me to dance and it was so much fun!

One piece of advice: Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and open up. Studying abroad is bound to be a new experience and difficult to adjust to but that is the fun part of it that you will cherish by the end!
