"While studying abroad in Australia and New Zealand during the 2017 summer session, I used this opportunity to open myself to new ideals and world views in hopes of becoming a more worldly student and more understanding physician. I was able to jump out of my comfort zone and (literally) dive into new cultures! From skydiving at Byron Bay to shark diving at Manly Harbor, every moment was a new adventure!"
