A Worldly View
I went abroad the summer after my freshman year, eager to see the world and put into practice the Spanish skills I had been learning in the classroom. The experience not only gave me professional skills, but also grew my confidence and gave me a more global outlook. Since returning to Westminster, I applied and was accepted to be a "Global Ambassador" for ISA Study Abroad on Westminster's campus. I wanted to promote the company and its programs at Westminster so that other students could have the same life-changing experience I had. There is nothing better for me than the feeling of stepping out of your comfort zone and exploring the unfamiliar. Every time I travel, I always learn more about myself and the world in which I live. Nothing expands your mind or makes you more of a well-rounded person that traveling and fully immersing yourself in an unfamiliar culture.
