After two delayed flights, a few hours on Lufthansa’s customer service line, and missing my flight in Germany, I finally boarded the plane. Getting to this point was stressful to say the least. But finally, I would get to live and study in Cyprus for the summer.

Hello from 3,328 miles away! My name is Jocelyn Canton and I am a first year student studying abroad for my first semester in the great global city of London. I am a UMass student studying Public Policy in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

With one month left, it is time for me to start reflecting on my experience and the lessons I have learned by living and learning in a foreign country.
