Study abroad is something my mom always wanted me to pursue because she never had the opportunity to do so. My family and I have been blessed to be able to travel for vacation, but I wanted something a little bit different. I wanted an experience where I could fully immerse myself into a culture in order to learn about people different than myself. One thing that I am excited to explore is different cafes. A large part of my own culture is food, and I would love to understand someone else through this same lens. (Not to mention, coffee!) I hope my experience abroad will help me better understand how important differences really are.
