Studying abroad has changed my perception of the world in so many ways. Before leaving, I was an ignorant teenager who hated pretty much everything about America. When in reality, I truly know nothing about the country I am privileged to be born in. During my time in Paris, I have met so many amazing people from all over the world, all carrying a special quirk and pride along with them.
I am beginning to realize that each state in the US isn't just a state, but a little nation, each proudly containing their own special identities.
I'm beginning to open my eyes a little wider; I believe.
