Top 3 goals for your time abroad: One of my top goals while abroad is to explore things outside of my comfort zone; I'd like to participate in different university activities, connect with students from diverse backgrounds, and explore Hungarian culture and food. Another goal of mine is to learn beyond the classrooms. While academics is a huge part of my study away experience, I would also like to be an active learner in all situations- whether that be in conversations with my peers/professors, adapting to Hungarian culture, or simply grocery shopping. A third goal of mine while studying abroad would be to challenge my norms. Instead of assuming things about people and concepts, I will be open-minded and embrace different ideas and realities of others.
