I spent three months at Oregon State University. As well as exploring Oregon, I've been to Seattle, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Niagara Falls and Toronto.

There's still university work, but you get the chance to try things you'd never try otherwise. I can't recommend studying abroad enough, you get to experience the world and massively grow as a person - so many people have told me I'm way more confident since coming back!
