Ask me about...
Being in a non-French school for the first time for an extended period of time
Being far from home for the first time
Being able to choose my classes and take a non-scientific class (I took photography)
My Experience at Penn:
Thanks to Penn, I was able to study biomechanics, which is something that isn't offered at my home university. When I came home, I got an internship in that field and so far it's amazing! I never would have been able to do it without my semester at Penn.
First is friends, definitely. I met some amazing people there and got so close to some other exchange students.
I was also able to travel a bit and discover New York, and I really wish I lived closer now! I got to develop my photography skills thanks to a class, and an awesome environment, and friends for models. I started gymnastics again and fell back in love with it.
