Lisa's Study Abroad Experience
"What did a study abroad trip to Japan mean for me? In a word, opportunities. Hiroshima, Japan was the best opportunity for me, because it allowed me to study the language and culture first hand. Traveling to Hiroshima was a paving stone on the path to my future and I would not trade the time I spent in Japan for anything."
