"Go, no matter where. You will have fun as long as there are other students there. Be open, things will be different, but that does not mean that it is always negative.

"If you get the chance to study abroad - take it! You never know when that chance comes again!

I guarantee that you will experience yourself being more independent and world-renowned and you will definitely be able to use the experience during your whole life! "
