I immersed myself into such a unique and vastly different culture from what I am used to and gained a wealth of knowledge that would not have been possible without this opportunity. My favorite part about studying abroad was the freedom I had to explore. Whether I was discovering a new favorite spot in Copenhagen, navigating the subway system of a country where I didn't speak the language or wandering through the streets of new and beautiful cities with amazing friends, there was always something I was doing that was new and exciting. My biggest piece of advice for those who are looking to study abroad is to go and don't hold back. Meet new people, join a local sports team, learn a new game, travel somewhere you never thought you would visit. Trust me, you won't regret it."
