THE TRUTH ABOUT MY COLLEGE STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE || Feed That Nation Feed That Nation

    • Health & Fitness

I'm talking about my college study abroad experience today! I traveled to South Africa and Namibia and it was the experience of a lifetime...but I'm learning to tell the truth: I really struggled with anxiety while I was abroad and most of the time I was there, I was truly miserable and wanting to come home!   

That's been hard for me to admit, because it feels like every other student I've met who has studied abroad has LOVED every second of their experience, and I didn't love mine the same way. But I'm learning that my experience, the positive and the negative, is MY experience and I have nothing to be ashamed of!   

The South Africa/Namibia blog series is hidden and I haven't found it yet! Will include the link once I do.
