CIEE, the American program I am studying with in Prague, is one of the most organized programs I have ever seen. Although before I came abroad, my parents and I had little to no information about where I was going to live, what the deal was with my class schedule…etc., CIEE has officially answered my every inquiry and more.
My favorite quote by Mark Twain is one that I believe to align quite literally with my outlook on life. He says:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
