I am glad that I chose to study abroad. It is because I feel like I gained so much just from preparing to apply to colleges. The friends I made in this community are all incredible people who accept me for who I am. I believe that our community evolved to be accepting because Ms. Suzuki was always "being herself." I learned to show my personality without being afraid to be rejected.
Of course, Ms. Suzuki is also an academically talented teacher. We discussed many difficult topics such as Artificial Intelligence, posthumanism, and global citizenship. When we get stuck in our discussion, she gives us new information that can help us think so that we can push our intellectual boundaries even more. Thanks to her courses and community, I had such a great learning experience!
