"My study abroad experience changed me in a way I never expected. Not only was I exposed to a new and different culture and lifestyle, but I learned that I could thrive in that type of unfamiliarity. My need for knowledge increased, and I became completely dedicated to knowing my city, my host family, the people that I met, and the way of life. Through studying abroad, I forced myself outside of my long-established comfort zone but ended up creating a new type of comfort zone, extended and flexible, that I will hold on to and use throughout my entire life"
