"my semester abroad in besançon, france was by far the most exciting and transformative time in my life. studying abroad gave me the opportunity to be independent and brave, traveling to new places all by myself. immersing myself in the language and culture i dedicated my studies to was a dream come true. i would spend my breaks between classes in the cobblestone city center to explore, do some shopping or spend time in cafés and book shops. this little city had great surprises around every corner, and it truly became my home.
