Why did you decide to study abroad?
I decided to go abroad with Semester at Sea to travel the world with a comparative lens to learn and relfect about how we function as humans around the world. Meeting and connecting with people from around the globe has been such a life changing experience for me and I would reccommend travelling to everyone! You learn so much about yourself on top of the people around you which makes the experience so beneficial for growth. I am the first one in my family to ever do something like this and I am setting the pathway for my younger and even older family members!
How did you pay for your study abroad experience?
My Semester at Sea Diversity Abroad Scolarship was the largest of all of my scholarships. Between scholarships, work, and crowdfunding/donations, I raised over $20,000 for my study abroad experience.
