What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I can't say enough good things about my time abroad. I learned to become a more independent person in the things I do on a daily basis and gave me the confidence to get out of my comfort zone! I met some amazing people and I can't believe my experience is over. Can I go again?!
