The Best Decision I've Ever Made
Submitted by David Naghiu - Catholic Central High School | March 20, 2017
My program taught me the value of studying. The investment in a year-long experience motivated me to really make the most of it. It was life-changing, and I will never look at the world the same way again. When you're in high school, it's a small universe, but when you go abroad, your world grows and you learn a lot about yourself. It’s honestly the best decision I’ve ever made.
Costa Rica made me more confident
Submitted by Leah Miller - Lakeview High School | February 27, 2017
My exchange made me more sure about what I want to do in life because of the cultural and historical influences I experienced. No matter how much I love my high school, now I will always want to get on a plane and travel to explore other cultures. Thanks to this experience, I also know that I can do it! And it made me prepared to work hard for the things that I really want. I may not be the most normal person, but this experience taught me that travel is where I belong. It made me confident that that’s what I need to be doing with my life.
Best decision of my life
Submitted by Kris - Sydney Australia | February 22, 2017
Australia was the best thing that ever happened to me. Thanks to Kara and the Greenheart Travel. I lost around 20 pounds, more self confidence, a better paying job, more social, and eating better. Sydney is a beautiful city and everyday I'm doing something different. I'm never bored and always happy. I recommend this company if you want a positive change in your life. I've never had any regrets
This experience improved my confidence and my grades
Submitted by Gabriella Toquam - Maranatha Christian Academy | February 08, 2017
Since my classes were all in Norwegian, I had to work really hard to pick up on things, and as a result, developed a stronger ability to focus. For this reason, my time abroad served as a new beginning and my grades have improved a lot since I’ve gotten back! During my travels, I also furthered my social skills by forcing myself to use the language and engage with locals. This program taught me to put myself out there and made me a more confident person.
Studying abroad sophomore year of HS!
Submitted by Christina Boyce - Everett High School | February 07, 2017
I am so thankful to have spent 6 months in Badajoz, Spain. I met so many great people from Spain and the United States. When I first arrived for the orientation I was really nervous, but the orientation staff is extremely welcoming and they help you learn more about the country. After leaving the orientation, I met my host family who helped me so much with my Spanish and they taught me so much about the Spanish culture. They had already had two past exchange students so they were very accommodating. Being in a smaller city was beneficial because not very many people spoke English so even if I wanted to speak it, I would have to try to use my Spanish instead. School was difficult because it was all taught in Spanish, but my classmates took their own time in class to help me understand the assignments. The school work was not that important to me as the grades wouldn't count for my transcript over here, but I tried the best I could. Over my whole trip I managed to do so many different things like try on traditional flamenco dresses at a local shop, ride horses on the beach and even got to visit Portugal! My favorite part of living in Spain was that every Friday I would go out with my classmates and walk the streets and go out to eat. Studying abroad was just as educational as learning in a traditional classroom because just being in a different country had taught me so much.
