Diverse culture, friendship, academic achievements, traveling, life skills, language,...what are your greatest gains?
For me, it is the diverse culture, friendship, and chances to travel with friends.
I would say confidence and self-completeness. Thanks to Seattle and all the friends I met there, it' s not an
exaggerating thing to say that I become a totally different person. I learned about how to respect people regardless of the stance and background. I learned to love myself and got the courage to pursue what I really like.
Does witnessing the Northern Lights count?🤣
Definitely a chance to truly engage in the local community! My volunteering experience at the local NGOs pushed me out of my comfort zone to mingle with the locals and gave me a sense of belonging - felt like not just a foreigner lol
I've never been to any exchange programs. But according to your experiences, it seems that it is the opportunity to engage in a new community and culture that does matter, right? (And the learning process is not so much important lol
For me, the best part is the concerts.
There are millions of chances to go to concerts...
