"When I arrived in Bø, Norway I had a lot of fear of the unknown and was tempted to stay inside my shell and comfort zone. But as the snow melted and winter turned to spring, I grew and blossomed. I have so much more confidence now at the end of my journey than I did at the beginning. I believe in my abilities and myself more strongly. I am at peace with leaving as hard as it was. I had a wonderful five months in Norway. I made so many friends from all over the world and I went outside of my comfort zone to make new experiences and adventures. As the saying goes, 'Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened'."
