Student Reflections on First-Generation Abroad: Time is precious

What I took back to the US is patience. In India, as loud as the roads are and as crazy as they drive, the people in India have patience. They definitely do not take things for granted. India is a third world country and if I know that people out there can live on a dollar a day, I should be able to do that. The US is definitely spoiled, and I think every student should make a decision to study abroad in a third world country to understand that their life is not bad. In India, people are happy for what little they have and I hope that when people come back to the United States, they will be able to apply that to their life and look at life on the brighter side.
