Studying abroad was an experience I thought I would never have but I always wanted to do. After attending workshops, info sessions, and peer advising, I learned that it was something possible for me. Immersing myself in different cultures has always been important to me to understand that all communities are different although there may be some similarities to each other. - Bianca Martinez
