Raychel Ruiz – Denmark – Spring 2017

Raychel Ruiz“My best memory abroad was getting to hang out with so many international students every day and dancing till 4 am every weekend and getting pizza from Ali Baba after. If I had to choose a singular moment, it would be jumping in the Baltic Sea as the sun rose one morning and floating with someone I met there.

Going abroad helped me to see what I was capable of. The work course there pushed me so much more than I’ve ever been pushed and even though it was hard at times, I was still able to work through it all and I was so proud of myself. Being abroad got me out of my comfort zone and gave me confidence. Although my current work isn’t what I learned when I studied abroad, a lot of the software I was taught is used at my current job.”
