My favorite part was learning about their cultures, different points of view, and different ways of living. I got to see that there is so much more than just Raleigh, N.C. It was so refreshing to see other parts of the world and realize that yes we are all different but we are also all similar in more ways than we think. Studying abroad has made me more open-minded and changed the way I interact with others at Peace and outside of Peace.
