What surprised me is that London is such a multicultural city. There are more than 300 languages spoken in London. We saw people from all over the world while we were exploring around.

Beginning my journey, I did not know what I was in for, from learning about the culture to being educated on the refugee crisis that is one of the biggest crisis in the world.

Spending the summer abroad in Norway was easily the best decision of my life. I started off in a city halfway across the world where I knew absolutely no one, but I was able to make friends, grow learn at a faster pace than ever before. It was a life changing experience that I would recommend to anyone.

I highly recommend people take advantage of studying abroad, it is great on a resume when you try to get careers in law enforcement, business, marketing, etc.

On this program we took various field trips and got some real hands-on learning. Instead of being in a classroom all day, we would go to the capital in Canberra, or see a real court case in session, and even have an Aboriginal welcoming in Jervis Bay. To me, this is the best way to learn - really be there and watch things happen right in front of you, rather than have someone teach it to you on a white board.

In the end, traveling to another country taught me many things both inside and outside of my chosen profession. However, the most important lesson I learned was that traveling to another country is not as intimidating as I imagined it would be and now after this experience I feel capable of planning my own experience sometime in the future either in Nepal again or potentially exploring another country.

I have always loved cooking and baking for others, but hearing the story of how one Tuscan man could take his dream of baking and turn himself into a legendary baker with a three-generational business, I fell in love with baking once again. I have always hoped to open a restaurant and after visiting the small family-run establishment in Florence, I feel affirmed in my dream career.

The love that this country has for one another is something that I wish I grew up around. What if we had to depend on each other more than what we had? How much would our attitudes change towards life? Towards one another? This program was more than just a trip to me. It was a life changing experience where I was able to understand life better than I was able to in the past.
