HOW DID YOU ENGAGE WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WHILE ABROAD?
I engaged with the local community through exploring the city in my free time. I tried to explore the local cuisine and go to different restaurants as much as I could which helped me feel more involved in the community and culture around me. I also took part in many of the cultural activities planned by my program coordinator which helped me learn more about French culture. Some of my favorite events and activities I took part in were a French food tasting, hockey game, street art tour, and a wine and cheese tasting.
WHAT'S ONE STORY OR IMPORTANT ASPECT YOU ALWAYS SHARE ABOUT YOUR TIME ABROAD?
One important aspect I always share about my time abroad is to always be open to new experiences and to keep an open mind. Even though some things are different than what you anticipated, there's always a bright side to every situation. I also recommend trying new things and doing things you never thought about as this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to take advantage of every experience that comes your way.
