February 24, 2018 I Haven't Left..
Was it worthwhile? It is still my life. I am still here. I have learned how important it is to be open-minded in this life. I have learned who I am and what it is I want out of this life.

Absolutely. I regret nothing in my experience. I gained the independence I was searching for. - Wheelock College View Entire Review

I now feel like if I was dropped into any country I could survive. I learned to budget my money and plan my own trips.

It was more than worthwhile. I am proud of myself for being away that long and growing more independent. I gained so many friends and learned from every single person I met. - Wheelock College View Entire Review
I learned to relax and loosen up/not be so up-tight about things. What happens, happens; no worries. Overall, I think my experience was well worthwhile. - Wheelock College View Entire Review
My experience in Newcastle was more than worthwhile. I have learned to appreciate the small things in life and not to stress out over everything. I have definitely adopted the Australian "no worries mate" attitude. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff. I definitely hope to come back some day and am motivated to see more of... - Wright State University View Entire Review
