"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." Mark Twain
Spending time abroad is a good decision.
What have the people of Seville taught me? Humility.
My semester opened up my eyes and most of all.....It showed me how much I do not know. A craving to learn has awakened inside of me as well as new passions and knowledge to share with those who will listen. Time with your host family and getting around in a city that does not speak English will strengthen your language skills and creating an entirely new social circle will grow you interpersonally. If you find yourself with the opportunity to travel and study in a country that is not your own, then do it. I know it seems like everyone is doing it so it is not as valued, but trust me. Its worth it. You will not come back the same.
