My favorite part of this program was meeting individuals from all over the world. It is really cool to say that I have friends in England, Thailand, and many other countries.

My favorite part of this program was gaining a perspective of a culture that is similar, yet vastly different to ours. Singapore is unique in the fact it is a cultural and historical melting pot to all the countries surrounding it but also very westernized in comparison. It is and has always been hub of Southeast Asia which is why it allowed for a wonderful look into an end product of cultural blending as well as many opportunities to travel to nearby countries.

Traveling from Singapore was really easy. It was also super simple to get to know other exchange students and locals.

I found that being immersed in a new culture was the most rewarding because I learned how to deal with new experiences that I had never encountered before. I learned how I adjust to new situations and how well I do under pressure. The opportunity to travel was also very rewarding. Singapore is in the center of Southeast Asia and it is very convenient and cheap to travel to other countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Vietnam.

I learned that it is easy to make travel plans. It seems like a daunting task, but once the flights and hotels are booked, all that has to be done is simply going. I also learned to adjust to the different standards that Singapore has for education. Singaporeans are extremely competitive and the education system is difficult. I had to work really hard to keep up with a system that Singaporeans had been in all of their lives.
