What is one thing that you are most anticipating about your study abroad experience?

Before I left for my study abroad experience, I was strongly anticipating meeting my host family and seeing what that experience would be like. I was a bit worried over the language barrier, but I was mostly excited at my opportunity. 

Why did you decide to study abroad? or What inspired you to study abroad?

As an international studies student, I love being able to learn more about the different cultures, languages, and lifestyles that people have all over the world. For Japan specifically, I wanted to experience a culture that was different from the westernized style that I was familiar with. Additionally, I wanted to push myself to learn a new language through immersion. 

The second photo is of my friend, Lindsay and I. We both studied abroad in Germany during high school and now we’re both studying in Japan. It was such a fun coincidence seeing her again!
