Studying abroad in Finland at HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences was, without a doubt, the best decision I have ever made. When studying abroad, one confronts many different challenges that can make them grow as a person mentally and emotionally. It can expand your perspective about different cultures as well as ways of teaching and learning, helping you to understand each of them better. Following this life changing experience, I now say that I have family in different parts of the world. Also, being able to learn from different teaching methods was very interesting but challenging at the same time. However, I was able to overcome this and other personal challenges, such as speaking and giving oral presentations in English. This has been a life changing experience for me and I would definitely recommend that every student study abroad at least once in their life.
