"Put yourself in a position where you're working to live, not living to work."
Former Outstanding International Education Student (2018)
Participating in the Bridge Program as a First Friend and studying abroad in Japan
the summer of 2016 are by far my favorite memories from my time here at Austin Peay.
I've made priceless lifelong friendships, shared cultures with international and exchange
students, and have obtained an unquenchable thirst for travel and a desire to work
abroad in the future to further my knowledge of other cultures. In fact, it is because
of the positive connections I have made abroad and here on campus that I have accepted
my dream position teaching English in Japan. I encourage everyone to study abroad
and get outside of your comfort zone. You won't regret it. It will open your mind
in ways you can't imagine. If you see an international student, approach them and
start a conversation with them. You might learn something new and even gain a new
best friend (or a few) along the way.
