20091002_Roman_AK''My experience in Australia turned out to be incredible; studying here has shown me how meaningful interaction with people outside my country of origin really is. Learning to function in a new culture is challenging because I had to think outside of my normal comfort zones, but I learned a lot and and it gave me more ideas of how best to live. I feel that I learned to understand people on a deeper level that I could only understand by living with other cultures."
