The most rewarding part of the program was experiencing the different cultures. I am very grateful to be given the opportunity to explore the world. Brno was in a central location and that enabled me to travel a lot. I visited over 10 countries and 20 cities. I put myself in situations that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I learned a lot about different cultures in the countries I went. I got to experience everything first hand instead about just reading about it online.

I loved getting involved on campus. We worked with a university group that discussed and helped present ideas and solutions to the Syrian refugee crisis. I enjoyed the culture a lot more than the academic experiences because I felt I learned a lot about myself and about other cultures while abroad.

The most rewarding element of the whole program was the level that I got to know other international students. I lived in an international dorm (Vinarska) and met friends that I know I will have for the rest of my life. As much as I loved traveling while I was abroad, the best part was having the opportunity to live in an area with like-minded students from countries all around the world.
