I gained so much confidence in myself. The situation forced me to be more proactive in every aspect of my life. I traveled across the country, made awesome friends, and improved my Spanish so much.

It was not always easy, and I did have tough days, but it was an... - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
