Why did you choose to study abroad and how did you select your program?
I have a German minor and I am very interested in history, so I chose the program in Berlin since Berlin played an very important role in the 20th century.


What did you learn about yourself?
I feel that I am more brave and I am more willing to talk to other people in German. I also achieved the ability to manage multi-tasks since I had to complete so many things such as school work and paper work at the same time.

My favorite memory is when I took the train to travel from Berlin to a lot of other places in Germany.


What advice do you have for future study abroad students?
Be brave and get ready to be flooded with lots of tasks.
