"Every country, every landscape, and every person that I've seen/met in the past 6 months has brought so much happiness and love into my life. It was my dream to study abroad and not only did I cherish ever second, but I learned to appreciate every moment of the day. I will miss and hold close to my heart all of the good times, the bad times, and the times I would get lost and end up in a beautiful and magical place. This world is so big with so many beautiful cultures and languages and experiencing it through my study abroad opportunity sincerely changed my life! If you have the opportunity to study abroad don't think twice about it!" - Ana Guzman, UCF Business Major
