"Leaving New Zealand was SO hard, and they don't really tell you just how difficult leaving your study abroad country and friends is. Nothing could have prepared me for my last hugs with my friends, and my last views of the country that changed my life. It was hard to get onto the plane, and even harder to transition back into life in the U.S., but now I can look back and say I had the best experience every, and I am so happy I did it. Studying abroad was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life, and I am already planning my next trip back!
If you are thinking about studying abroad and something is holding you back, just do it. You will not regret it! It will change your life." - Kennedy Kniss, University of Waikato, New Zealand
