Feel the Difference Being in a country through all of your life is safe but doesn’t sound fascinating for me. These days, a large amount of people study abroad all over the world and work using the skills they have gained through the experiences in other countries. I am also one of them. I am a college student in America studying Public Relations. I would like to discuss the importance of studying abroad through my experiences. First, through being in a different country, America, my view of thinking got broader. Many of my friends back home, Japan, are going to a university in Japan and have never been abroad to study. When I went back home for the first time, a year after coming here, they said I got matured and broadened my horizons. I had not thought of myself before they told me so, but actually looking back at myself a year ago I was very childish and immature. I think coming in touch with different cultures gave me many different ways of thinking. There are a variety of people from many other countries who have different points of view. I have met a lot of people from different countries and discussed all sorts of things. Sometimes, we argue and do not understand each other, but those discussions changed my way of thinking. Secondly, living in a dormitory taught me how to deal with people. Since I am a university student in America, I have got opportunities to live in a dorm. I have had three roommates so far and had many good and bad experiences. My first roommate was very nice to me. I did not have any concern with her and we respected each other. The second roommate had a boyfriend back home and he came down every two weekends. That just sucked. I tried to tell her not let him come and stay in our room, but she kept having him staying in the room. I had been annoyed so much by the two of them and quarreled many times with them. This experience definitely made me be able to tell people

When a future employer asks me to talk about my study abroad experience the first thing that I automatically want to say is that it was an amazing, life-altering opportunity. Recently, though, I have given this response more thought.…
