In January of 2018 traveled to South Africa and Namibia for a study abroad course. It was the experience of a lifetime, but I’m learning to tell my truth: I struggled with anxiety while I was abroad and most of the time I was there, I was truly miserable and wanting to come home!

That’s been hard for me to admit, because it feels like every other student I’ve met who has studied abroad has LOVED every second of their experience, and I didn’t love mine the same way. But I’m learning that my experience, the positive and the negative, is MY experience and I have nothing to be ashamed of!
