Hey there!

How are you? To be honest we're feeling extra proud this week because our Film Festival started, and as always, these student films got right to the heart of what makes study abroad so totally, absolutely, undeniably amazing! ๐ŸŽฌWhile we wait for travel to safely resume, let these films from Tokyo, London, and Nantes blow you away with the sights you'll see โ›ฉ, the friends you'll make ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘ง, and the fun you'll have abroad ๐ŸŽ‰.

Watch & Vote for the Best Student Film

Now that youโ€™ve seen the films, youโ€™ll understand why this week we had to dive into the most authentic, unique, unfiltered, and captivating lens there is. You got it: the student lens. ๐Ÿ”

From the literal lenses students are using to capture their experiences abroad ๐Ÿ“ธ, to pieces by students just telling it from their POV โœ๐Ÿผ, here are our picks to remind you of the power of the student voice.

“Moving halfway across the country [for a job] was a terrifying decision for me. If I hadn't gone abroad and already experienced what it was like to leave home for four months, I don't think I would have taken such a bold leap and pursued storytelling professionally.”
Thamine N. (Rabat | University of Richmond)

Picture life abroad through the #IESabroad feed and the lenses of this year's Photo Contest Winners.

Your study abroad adventure is just around the corner, and we can't wait to see how it looks through your lens!
