I had never really travelled before my experience of going abroad. It was a bit scary at first because you are traveling to another country – after all, it’s hard getting out of your comfort zone. Looking back at it, it was probably one of the best decisions I had made in my life up to that point. Apart from the obvious benefits like learning a new language or discovering a new culture, an experience abroad completely changes the way you see yourself relative to the rest of the world. Many of us grow up in our bubbles but I truly believe that at some point we are all best served by getting out of our comfort zone and seeing what we are made of!
