Did studying with FIE change the way you think about life?: "Absolutely. Studying in London was a phenomenal experience. It taught me independence, perseverance, and provided me with the opportunity to travel and learn about different cultures. I made some great friends in London, whom I still stay in contact with to this day. I would recommend the FIE program to any new college student! It certainly enhanced my professional career. I "grew up" quickly while away and learned how to juggle school and work while taking the time to culturally invest in my surroundings.By making friends with people from different cultures, I opened up my mind on a variety of political and social issues."
