Semester at Sea was a truly life changing event that is unmeasurable to how it has shaped me to be the person I am today. I was not one to travel before this trip and didn’t want to study abroad in a place I knew I could easily get to later in life. This trip planted the travel bug in me, opened my mind, introduced me to life long friends and changed the way I view the world we live in. The smallest moments are some of the largest most impactful moments I had. This was the most educational experience I have ever received and there is no cost to how valuable it has been to me. Thank you semester at sea for truly changing my life.
