This will be my last blog post before going home for Christmas, and I have to say, I have learned so much. I have grown so much as a person in ways I didn’t think I would. Although I was already pretty independent, I learned to speak up for myself and how to handle tough situations on my own. I am being put in situations that make me act more like an adult, and I am learning through every single one. I am so lucky that I have been given this opportunity to see the world while getting a degree and continuing to play the sport I love. School has been interesting and challenging, because I’ve never studied business before. This degree will help broaden the employment opportunities I can get when I move back to the states, as well as give me a new viewpoint on life. The best part of this semester has been all the friends I have made. Though Sport Changes Life, club, and school, I have developed new relationships and life long friendships with people all over the world. In 6 days I will go back to Massachusetts, where I will spend the holiday with my family and friends, and tell them all about my experiences so far.
