What did you gain from studying abroad?
“My year abroad taught me so much more than just academics. I learned how to put myself out there and not be afraid of meeting new people, how to navigate a new city entirely on my own, and how to be independent. I came back from Korea with not only a greater knowledge of the Korean language and culture but a passion to help other students like me - those who are planning on studying abroad, and those who have come to the U.S. as international students.”
