Global Link has literally been THE BEST experience of my university life so far.
Coming to New York was a personally eye-opening experience as I realized how little I know about the world, even today. There’s so much that I’ve missed out and so much that I still don’t understand, and so many cultures that I have yet to experience as I see a mix of different ethnicities and races living literally side by side in New York City. It inspires and motivates me to travel, to see more of the world, instead of confining myself to where I am comfortable, and to understand more of why a certain group of people think a certain way, to see the logic behind their thinking instead of distancing myself from the “other.” I realized how judgmental I am of other people who are different from me, and that’s something that I hope to change as I start facing the real world in the next few years of my life.
