What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
It was amazing to immerse myself in a completely foreign culture and learn new things about the many countries I visited. I got to travel to many places I never thought I'd see before and make many new friends, since I did not know anyone else in the program before we left.

How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
I believe that this experience was very beneficial to me and my future. I think it is important to immerse oneself in a different culture in order to really become aware of it. I will be able to take what I learned in Italy and apply it to my life in the future. In my classes, I learned so many things about international governments that I think will be beneficial to me in my future endeavors. This was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had and I am so thankful I had this opportunity.
