Two months in America has given me incredible insights into the education system, culture and people here. Classes are drastically different to a UK university - weekly quizzes, multiple choice exams and class activities differ greatly from the experience I have had at university so far.
The experiences I have gained already during my short time here have been life changing, travelling 5,000 miles alone, meeting various different people from a multitude of countries and experiencing typical American College life. Living in dorms with American roommates has given me a clear insight into just how different our two cultures are.
The confidence I have gained allowed me to undertake my first interstate journey alone to the American Formula 1 Grand Prix, an incredible experience that I would not have had the confidence to attend alone if it weren’t for my time here.
Studying abroad is an incredible experience and I would urge anyone to consider it, as even in a short time I have gained valuable life experiences and skills.
