My Travel Story

Hello! I'm planning on studying abroad this coming spring semester in Australia! I'm hoping to visit the Great Barrier Reef, go inland and sight see, and travel to other regions nearby, such as New Zealand! I'm hoping to meet as many new people as possible and really get involved in activities. This adventure offers a lot of new experiences for me, and being away from my family for such a long time will be hard. However, the knowlege and cultural endeavors I will have experienced will help me stand out among my peers. This will greatly impact my education because I will have hands on learning in a new environment. I hope to make a difference in this community by participating in events around the area and learning the ins and outs of Australian culture. I do really appreciate that this area is mainly (only?) English speaking. I have taken other languages before, so I have that background, however, I think being over 10,000 miles away from home is enough of a challenge. I am very passionate about studying abroad, because it's a once in a lifetime experience. I get to learn, and earn a semester's worth of credits while traveling and sight seeing! Not many people who have the opportunity choose to take advantage of it. I chose this destination because I think I will love the environment. I'm very excited to see the nature, the animals, and the lifestyle that Australia has to offer. This opportunity is meaningful for me because I couldn't pass on the possibility of living in a different culture while I had the chance. Once I graduate, the chance of traveling is less likely than now! I would hate to miss out on a life-altering experience.
