Studying abroad with Pepperdine helped me to appreciate how big the world really is. It helped me to appreciate the vastly different places I now call home as well as look forward to calling home places I haven't traveled to yet! My experience enabled me to become a better neighbor and global citizen through coming to love and learn from people across the world within their own cultures and communities. I truthfully love the world and love others better today because of living and learning abroad with the incredible community the Pepperdine Lausanne program offered me in Switzerland , throughout Europe, and in Africa.
