Studying abroad was an experience I’ll never forget. I studied in Ottawa and I would do it all again even in spite of the -30 degree weather! I ice skated to my lectures-crazy, I know! The experience made me curious and helped me to accept different cultures and ways of being. The modules gave me access to topics I wouldn’t have otherwise studied; I learnt about Canada’s indigenous people and criminal justice system. Most memorably, I got to be part of the cheerleading team and train with professional coaches. I met new friends on the course and got to travel, it was such a unique experience.
