I learned that you're never as exposed as you believe. I was introduced to so many new art forms and information, truly a great experience.
This program was the perfect balance between education and fun. I loved getting to meet new people while being immersed in new cultures and different ways of life. This program broadened my perspective and I'm so thankful to have met such wonderful people!
My favorite part about this program was having the opportunity to really explore the places that we visited. We spent a lot of time just walking around and exploring. This was very beneficial to my photography project, and allowed everyone in the group to have a lot of time to sketch. I also really enjoyed spending time with the locals cheering during the Euro Cup. It was fun to feel like a local for a while and see what day to day life is like.
