What was the scariest part about thinking about study abroad? What were you worried about before you left?

The scariest part about study abroad for me was that I wouldn't get to know people and have the experience be awkward. I was afraid that the group of students would split into groups of people that knew each other. However, that wasn't the case.
What was the best part about studying abroad?
The best part about it was that I got to finally experience my dream of travelling to Italy. It had always been a hope of mine to visit!

What would you say to someone who wasn’t sure about studying abroad?
I would tell them to try as hard as they could to do it, even if it is for a short period. Studying abroad is an experience that is like nothing I've ever experienced, and it should be seriously considered!

What was your favorite meal?
My favorite meal was definitely the homemade Tonnarelli Bolognese that we had at one of the vineyards in Tuscany. Probably my favorite meal of all time!
