I will be studying abroad to learn about different cultures and to better familiarize myself with the Spanish language in February at the University of Jaen Spain. Studying abroad will give me a chance to experience different styles of education and hone my language skills. It will increase my career opportunities by giving me language skills, a great education and by showing I have a willingness to learn. This will help my personal development and growth. I think studying abroad is once in a lifetime chance, this will most likely be my only chance to be in a foreign country for a long period of time. I'm grateful for this opportunity and I'm happy to take advantage of it.
