The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Well, it seems as if all my hard work has finally paid off… I have officially been accepted through Institute for Study Abroad Butler University to study abroad in Australia, where I will be attending Griffith University, Gold Coast! It still doesn’t feel real that I will be spending this coming spring semester in another country. I am so excited to explore, eager to learn, and grateful to have this opportunity. Once I was officially accepted into the program and I declared that I was definitely going to travel abroad, I was ecstatic but also extremely nervous. A worry of mine is knowing that I will be beyond thousands of miles away from home. But when I think about it, I realize that with this single step, I am one step closer to an experience of a lifetime. And with that being said, I really have nothing to worry about other than making each and every day in Australia, some of the best days of my life.
February 15th cannot come soon enough!
