Overall Experience
I gained a confidence I didn't have before. Every day I was in a culture different from mine and had to overcome the obstacles of language and cultural barriers. Ultimately, I learned not only about other cultures, but about myself; in particular, my ability to take a challenge head on, and be a better person because of it. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
