Spring 2008 Global Education Scholarship 1st Place Essay Winner

"If you could compare your anticipated personal development during study abroad to any article of clothing, what would it be?" I’m used to flip-flops; the worn-down, plain brown, need-to-be-thrown out kind. These have been a safe dependable means of getting me through my college career so far. From classes to meetings to the football stadium, my trusty flip-flops serve me well, but they leave much to be desired. Like my flip-flops, I’ve become too comfortable in my college lifestyle. Life at school has become a little flat and I am ready to push my boundaries. I am anxious for the chance to finally make the transition from the ordinary to the unexpected. Now imagine heels. Not just little sandals, but bright red, 3-inch high, pointy-toed heels. The switch from my everyday wear to in-your-face heels is what I expect of my study abroad experience. Coming from the security of flip-flops, the idea of leaving behind everything I know and trying something completely different can be terrifying. The first steps of this new experience in heels may be uncomfortable, a little unstable and definitely challenging... Amanda Aaron Spring 2008 Granada, Spain University of Maryland College Park
