Stephanie Dixon - USA

Course: Study Abroad (Journalism)
Institute: University of Canberra
Canberra, Australia Capital Territory

Living in Australia was a dream of mine since I was a kid, so with the idea of studying abroad and, thanks to God’s providence, I was able to hop on a plane and kiss Tennessee goodbye!

Studying at the University of Canberra was the experience of a lifetime! Canberra was close enough to Sydney to take lots of trips, but in the bush enough to see kangaroos on campus!  The people I met and got to know in Australia made it the experience of a lifetime. The folks I lived with and my fellow exchangers helped to make every moment unforgettable. Now they are friends that I hope to keep for the rest of my life.

Going out on my own to a new country helped bring about this kind of personal growth. I would love to have the opportunity to travel with a job in the future, so studying abroad is a great experience to have on my resume. I have already had interviews since I have come home and it is something that employers have been really excited to talk about with me.

Wherever life takes me, Australia will always be my first love.
