I studied abroad for a term in the United States. I was based in New Jersey attending Centenary majoring in Communications and picked up some other classes such as Sociology and Social Psychology. This was an incredible experience that took me out of my comfort zone as I had never left home until I had to move across the atlantic for half a year. Skills were certainly tested such as adaptability, meeting new people everyday and balancing university work with travelling.
