My favorite part of this program was the sheer cultural diversity at Kent. I had a very international house, with students from all over, and a significant portion of students in all my classes were studying abroad just like me. Despite our different upbringings, it gave us something to bond over while we also shared quirks from our own cultures.

I learned not to take my hometown, home state, and home country for granted. When traveling to foreign countries you will encounter things you may have never seen before. You will be uncomfortable sometimes. Not everything is always going to go smoothly. However, those are the things that make traveling worthwhile. Encountering something different or difficult and overcoming those challenges is extremely rewarding, especially when in a foreign country.

Canterbury is a very picturesque town and I loved it, but to travel anywhere you really have to go to London. I traveled every weekend, mostly internationally, and the 3 hour trip to the airport twice a week got old pretty fast. I am glad that I did this program, but the travel time to get anywhere is something I wish I would have known before going.
