Summer 2017 Participant
One of the reasons studying abroad was important to me was I wanted to be able to live in the world without being afraid of it. By the end of the program, I was able to explore new places without being scared or devastatingly anxious, which is a skill I will use for the rest of my life.

The entire trip was so amazing. We got to experience the full range of British culture which was really cool, but the outing to Haworth was really cool. Our group hiked to the Bronte Waterfall and got to experience the moors in the same way they did while they were writing their novels. It really highlighted the connection between the Bronte's writing and their environment.

I learned that sometimes, one must let go of certain things in order to enjoy the environment to the fullest. In my case, I had to let go of people; I couldn't let the people I was with to get in the way of my experiences.
