We have been home for about 4 days and I thought life would slow down a bit, but it hasn’t. Between analyzing data and adjusting to the time change, I still feel like I haven’t settled in. Taking a minute to step away from my group and trip, I’m walking away with such gratitude. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to meet new friends, do some data collection and be exposed to a new-ish culture (I have traveled to the UK before). I can’t stop telling stories and sharing experiences with my friends and family. Moving forward in my career, I will encourage all my future students to participate in a study abroad program, because the knowledge I have gained is nothing like I could have gained in a classroom.
Thank you UGA CAES for giving me this opportunity!
