Australia: You'll never want to leave! Past Review

By (Dance, Ohio State University - Columbus) for

ISA Study Abroad in Brisbane, Australia

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Yes! I had the most wonderful experience meeting Australians as well as exploring the land down under! I am so much more aware of how big and diverse the world really is and how to respect and embrace those differences. My experience abroad has changed my life completely. I met my boyfriend here, who is Australian, so now I've moved back to Australia after graduating to live with him.
