What is Your Favorite Memory from Your Time Abroad?

My favorite memory from study abroad was the first encounter I had with the other ISEP students. We all met up at a local bar and had drinks and tapas. Being together with so many people who are so similar yet different in many ways was amazing. It made me excited for the upcoming year and the adventures that awaited us.

How Has Studying Abroad Helped Your Personal and Professional Life?
