Diversity Perspective

Olivia Chambliss

"The best way to make friends and engage with the community is to participate in school activities or look for volunteering opportunities. The people I met were friendly and eager to show me around their hometown. It’s okay to be shy, but taking chances and reaching out to local students is all a part of the study abroad experience."
