Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
