“I was really motivated to live and work in a different culture as I have always wanted to move away for my career but was honestly too scared to. This experience has 100% changed my mentality of living and working away from home independently. I also love meeting new people and now have contacts and friends all around the world which is exciting for travel and work opportunities.”

– Matilda H, Bachelor of Mass Communication (Journalism and Public Relations)
