Transformational Overseas Experience

As an undergraduate, I spent a semester studying abroad in Seville, Spain. It was my first time traveling internationally, and I did not know any other students on the program. It not only sparked an interest in international travel and learning new languages and cultures but successfully navigating this experience did wonders for my self-confidence. This experience stayed with me, leading me to spend a year teaching English in Chile and ultimately to changing my career path from the health professions into international education.
