While missing things at home with loved ones did make me feel sad from time to time, I continuously reminded myself that no one back at home was experiencing the new and amazing things that I was in a foreign country.
One of the most incredible parts of studying abroad was the opportunity to make new friends from all over the world.
Ever since I was little I’ve wanted to go to Australia and I never thought it would actually happen.
Some people might think it’s impossible to study abroad between the cost and all the classes they have to take, but if you plan properly it’s not hard to organize.
The past 4 months that I spent in London were and always will be the best 4 months of my life.
Every day was a new adventure and a new story that could be told.I made friendships that are so tight I would call them family, and I hold memories that I will treasure until the end of time, all thanks to simply applying for a program we are so lucky to be offered by Monmouth University.Before leaving for my trip I was excited and fearful at the same time.I learned so much about myself and the world in general and I met so many people and made lifelong friends who I hope to reunite with again.I will always have the amazing memories of my experience abroad to look back on.I fell in love with the city of London, and plan to return one day with the intention to never leave again.My decision to study abroad was the best decision I have ever made.I am so much older than I was before I had gone abroad, thanks to the tons of traveling and the people I was so lucky to meet while there.Studying abroad in Australia taught me a lot about myself and gave me a worldview I would not have without this experience or would not have developed until much later.For anyone studying abroad, I wish you all the best and hope that your experiences teaches you more than you could have imagined and helps you grow into the person you want to be!Studying abroad was easily the best decision I’ve made in my entire life.
