The world is much smaller and more interconnected than we imagine; I learned as much through my study abroad programs with ASU. These unique opportunities to study and live in another country provided me with eye opening experiences that showed me the importance of making sure my work is relevant and impactful on a global scale. As a dual degree student studying Biomedical Engineering and Spanish Linguistics, I understand better than before my experience how important it is to consider the needs of different cultures and different people. Study abroad also provided me with a unique opportunity to reflect on my lifestyle and choices and look at the world through a new lens and to become more compassionate and understanding of the 7 billion unique ways of life that exist on this planet.
