Semester Abroad in Thailand & Vietnam
I chose to study abroad in Thailand and Vietnam because I’d never been to Asia and I wanted to experience a culture other than my own. Studying abroad has deepened my Pace education simply by letting me have a hands-on experience while learning, which is more suitable to my learning needs. In terms of my international outlook, the program has exposed me to different ideas.
I’ve grown as a person from this experience and definitely believe that my experience abroad has strengthened my soft skills that employers are looking for because I’ve been put in many situations where I’ve been the one in charge of making sure things are getting done. I think my study abroad experience will make me stand out to employers because they will perceive me as an individual who isn’t afraid to take risks, is independent and willing to learn. With my study abroad experience, I believe I’ll be able to go very far with my career and pursue a lifestyle different than I planned, and I am more than ready for that experience.
