Study Abroad Profiles

Courtney Dubiel

Perth, Australia

Why did you decide to study abroad?

I studied abroad because I wanted to experience other parts of the world, as well as different cultures.

If you could tell someone one reason why they should go, what would you say?

I promise you will not regret it. You meet some of the greatest people and learn things about yourself and the world that you probably would never learn if you stay in New York.

What was your most memorable experience while studying abroad?

Probably traveling to Fiji and Bali, Indonesia. They are relatively poor countries, but they are some of the happiest people you will ever meet. It was just amazing to see how they made livings and what they valued.

What was the biggest obstacle you had to face while studying abroad?

I had broken my wrist the first month in Australia. So, figuring out insurance and hospital bills was very difficult because I couldn't just call up my parents to figure it out for me.

Describe one or two sights, sounds, or smells that help us understand what your daily experience was like while abroad.

If you have seen Anchorman 2, I would say the Australian boss's accent when he first addresses the news crew and no one understands what he is saying. Hearing really thick Australian accents was like that every day. Usually you had no clue what they were saying.

How has studying abroad affected your personal development?

Studying abroad has made me more aware of myself and more aware of how different cultures can affect a person's train of thought. I met people from all over the world and everyone's values, ethics, and train of thought was different depending on where they were from.
