Headshot of Jaden Ferraro.
“I brought home with me more confidence than I’ve ever had before. Never have I been pushed out of my comfort zone more times in a single semester than in my semester abroad. I was constantly throwing myself into unfamiliar situations and adjusting to things done differently. I ate things I had never eaten before. I traveled to places I never imagined I would see.”
