Why Abroad?

I’ve always dreamed of traveling the world to experience life outside of Hawaiʻi. Being Hawaiian and growing up in Hawaiʻi, my culture is so unique and very special to me. The idea of visiting other countries and witnessing their culture and environment is so fascinating to me.

ʻAʻohe pau ka ʻike i ka hālau hoʻokahi.

Not all knowledge is learned in just one school.

This ʻōlelo noʻeau sums up why I am choosing to study abroad. One can learn from many different sources. By learning in a different part of the world will help me broaden my perspective on many things.

Being a Business major, it is so important to be aware of the global economy, international trade and transactions. Studying in France would allow me to grow not only academically, but individually as well.

This is something new for me, traveling alone. I will have to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things. I am looking forward to live in Paris for a month, make new friends, and hopefully gain lifelong lessons and knowledge to take with me.
