I studied abroad at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales , Australia for six months. In my classes I learned about the history of Australia and the native Aboriginal people. Living in Australia opened the door to many new and exciting experiences. I bought a surf board and went surfing everyday, I got SCUBA certified and went diving in the Great Barrier Reef , I lived in hostels with people from all over the world, and I did a lot of traveling within Australia and even to Thailand . I will never forget the people I met and the places I saw. The time I spent overseas was honestly the best six months of my life.
