Impact of Experience Abroad

Studying abroad has most definitely changed me. I feel that now I am much more open to and aware of other cultures and cultural differences around me. I have also learned to appreciate many aspects of my own culture. Before leaving to study abroad, I was almost embarrassed by being American, but I learned that there are certain things that I can’t change about who I am and that I would not want to anyway.
