As part of International Education Week, we asked our student bloggers to address one of the 5 Benefits of Study Abroad, and how they relate to the experiences they’re having right now. What they shared went beyond our expectations—heartwarming stories about travel, unique learning opportunities, personal development, intercultural communication, and career benefits.
One of the most powerful posts was IES Abroad Rome student blogger Elisabeth Hawthorne’s video blog, The Bravest Measure. See it for yourself below—we think it’ll make you want to travel the world, too.
