In less than a day, I will be in a whole new continent that I have never been to! I am excited, but I am also nervous. I feel like it is always thrilling to experience a whole new environment that I am not familiar with, but also people tend to have an anxiety of uncertain towards unknown future. This is not my first time to travel out of my home and live for a long period already, but still, I am always nervous about new encounters.
I truly believe this study abroad experience will be an amazing experience for me to step out of my comfort zone again. No matter what I meet, I will definitely learn and reflect myself. I enjoy the process of reflection, I think it teaches me to know how to become a better me. As an immigrant, I think being in the United States had made me change a lot in comparison to who I was years ago. The culture, the difficulties, the people, all have taught me how to develop a self that I love. I look forward to knowing more about this world; the world is big, reading books does not teach you more than truly understanding by experiencing it yourself.
I am very excited about this month, I hope I learn as much as I want to. Now, let’s go back to packing.
