Straight Talk from a Duhawk

Studying abroad really enhanced my education. I had the opportunity to live and learn a culture and lifestyle completely different from my own. My semester in Lisbon, Portugal pushed my comfort zone, taught me lessons about myself, and has guided my future career goals. I had a once in a lifetime experience that will stay with me forever.
