Study Abroad Trip to Greece!
The biggest reason I have decided to study abroad is to see the world and experience differing outlooks, cultures, and interests. Not only is Greece a beautiful place to spend your days, it’s also full of social and architectural culture. Through this program I will be able to experience a side of psychology that I am not able to experience in Sioux Falls. Psych is notorious for the debate on nature vs. nurture and relocating myself to a whole new country will help me better understand how nurture can influence the developmental stage of young adults. Continuing off of that point, the sociocultural effects of growing up in a completely different atmosphere than college-aged students in Greece have limited my interests to activities that can only be performed in South Dakota. My hope is that I will get to experience new hobbies that are favored in Greece that I do not have the opportunity to come across in the United States. However, I have a deep love of photography that I plan on bringing with me as I experience the beauty of all of the stunning islands, architecture, and people of Greece. Lastly, this is truly the opportunity of a lifetime. There will be no other time in my life that I can set aside nearly a month of my time to immerse myself into a completely new domain of living.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my passion for adventure and a new outlook on life. Asking for money is a difficult task, so don't feel obligated to donate!
