My experience in England was like no other. While traveling to many different cities across England, the professors were always there for us. They made sure we learned a lot, and discovered a lot. They trusted us as adults and encouraged us to live and separate from our comfort zones. After my experience, I feel much more confident about traveling abroad and cannot wait to do it again.
