Why did you choose to study abroad?
I wanted this experience to help me learn how to live on my own, thousands of miles from home. I also hoped my experience in Hong Kong will expose me to the diverse culture in China and the sights of the city. In the past, I have had the privilege to go to Hong Kong once before, so I have some interaction with the Chinese culture. However, study abroad during the spring semester offered the inviting opportunity to experience life as a college student in Hong Kong.
