Abstract

The purpose of my presentation is to examine the trials and tribulations of studying abroad. It gives listeners a true perspective of what it is like to be an American student studying in a foreign country. I not only focus on the amazing benefits that come with study abroad but also present the reality of what traveling the world is really like. I will share my constant battle with the European toilet, my travels to 14 different countries in three months, homesickness, financial fears, and how I completely changed as a person both mentally and physically. This is my story of studying abroad, my journey, and the road I took to becoming who I am today.
