In December of 2014 a friend of mine, Kara Couwenhoven contacted me asking if I wanted to study sports in Australia for a month during the summer. I said yes without hesitation, but had no idea of all of the adventures, memories, and friends that I would make while in Australia. Although I was very excited to get to Australia and see what adventures awaited me, I was very anxious about being in a foreign country without my family. I was worried about cultural transitions and making friends in the group. Once I got to Australia, I realized that I had worried for nothing because I met some amazing people and learned a lot about the Australian culture.
