NWTC Students Share Why They Studied Abroad

This trip has changed my life. I am more confident in my abilities. I conquered many fears such as flying, leaving the country, and being so far away from my family

An opportunity like this may not come again. Doing a study abroad trip allows you to experience the country in a way you wouldn't be able to on your own. You meet some really great people and friends along the way, too.

I understand so much more about the Chinese culture now. I have a deeper understanding for what their values are and how that can affect their business practices.

I have many wonderful memories. While in Belize, I had the opportunity to work in a preschool for a week. I was nervous. On the first day working in the school, I walked in and met the kids. Within minutes, a little girl walked up to me and tugged on my pant leg. I knelt so that I could be at her level. She then gave me a hug. My heart melted. I was touched that she would come up to me, a complete stranger, and hug me.
