“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” - Maya Angelou


being an exchange student

- is fantastic
- is meeting hundreds of wonderful people
 - is giving speeches and writing letters
 - is getting fat and, at times, being poor
 - is seeing a new country and experiencing new things
 - is being homesick and, at times, miserable
 - is getting tired
 - is being an ambassador
 - is personal growth

From my Florida outbound student handbook. Reading this now feels so different then when I read it before I left because I'm living it all.
