“I am more self-confident now and more independent. I had never been so far away from home or to an English-speaking country before. I also appreciate that I always had a person who I could talk to if I had any kind of problem. [I recommend students] participate in as many activities as possible… go to the campus [events]… also, don’t be afraid to fail.”
