Overall, this trip has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. I feel like I have grown so much as an individual and have had so many experiences that I wouldn’t have had if I didn’t push myself out of my comfort zone. The friendships I have formed and the people I have met on this trip are truly amazing, and I can’t wait to see how they continue to grow. Some of the things I’ve seen or experienced were things I would have never pictured myself experiencing going into this trip, and I am truly grateful. Not only does pushing yourself out of your normal routine make you a more rounded and adaptable person, but it also makes you expand your knowledge and bounds more than you ever thought possible. You will come back from your trip abroad as a different person, but so much better because of it. The trip will go by so quickly even if it feels like forever. Make sure you embrace every moment of it and take every opportunity that you possibly can. You’ll never regret an experience because at the very least (even if it’s terrible), you will have a funny story to tell later. I was second guessing myself so much before going on this trip, almost to the point of backing out, but I could not be prouder of myself or more appreciative of the experience I’ve had. I could go into the past 100 times and would make this decision every single time. Don’t look back, and have the best time, I know you will!
