International Exchange Year LAKEISHA EVANS

I'd highly recommend an exchange year, for several reasons:

  1. you learn so much about yourself
  2. you make new friends from around the world
  3. the opportunity to travel more
  4. you can experience different cultures - even if you don't think it'll be that different
  5. see different education system - chance to study modules you may not be able to do back home (drama, discovering dinosaurs, and so much more)
