What would you say to a student undecided about studying abroad? I would say that in giving ourselves opportunities that make us somehow step out of our so-called ‘comfort zone’, is how we truly allow ourselves to grow. And not only that, but studying abroad, submerging ourselves in cultures different to our own, is how we encourage diversity and tolerance. By not only recognizing, but rather by embracing the differences in each other, we realize how much we are all the same: How communities and humanity is not limited by things as arbitrary as borders and ethnicities.
