As study abroad experiences these unprecedented times, we feel fortunate. We see a light ahead and more importantly we have a light among us. Matthew (Matty) Bickman is one of the few students to venture back out into the world with us. Together, we're all making new discoveries. He wrote the following reflection as an assignment for our course, Intercultural Dialogue, Democracy and Global Citizenship through Reflection. We thought that it was worth sharing as a testament to the importance of contact, host-families, and study abroad right now! Grazie Matty. Matthew
