Even before I graduated high school, I knew I wanted to study abroad. Languages have always been a very keen interest of mine, and I've studied several of them throughout my educational experience. Language and intercultural immersion are probably the biggest reasons for me to study abroad--the best way to really learn a language is to use it and be surrounded by it, and the best way to understand the hows and the whys of a language is to experience it together with the culture to which it is tied.Diversity is also a reason for me to study abroad. As someone who grew up exposed to multiple cultures, diversity has always been very important to me. I've studied Chinese off and on throughout my childhood, because my parents felt it was important for me to be aware of my Asian heritage. When I started officially studying languages in middle school, however, I realized that what I wanted wasn't just to read and speak and write other languages besides English; I wanted to experience the culture as well and broaden my worldview outside of the United States.
