 My name is Corentin, I am 20 years old and I am starting my second year at Moravian College. I write today a short letter for all of you thinking about leaving your home country and studying in the US. It’s not easy to leave, but I chose to because, from my perspective, an experience such as this one brings you maturity, and above all an open mind.

For me, my first year was a real success, with a group of friends I can’t wait to see again, the nicest and most welcoming campus staff, and an atmosphere I particularly appreciate. To go abroad is above all to know that, in order to live this adventure to the fullest, you will have to open up your mind, but also to show courage when needed, as it is not always easy to move somewhere where the culture is so different, and let’s be honest, there will be some hard times.

But believe me, you will live an experience that will change your life, that will change how you see things, that will change who you are on so many levels. I think the important thing to keep in mind when leaving for another country is to try. Don’t lose what makes you a “Frenchie” (this will be your nickname for a while, believe me!), but be open, never turn someone down who is inviting you to join them.

Whether you’ve traveled 7,000 or 300 kilometers, to change your environment is not easy, and it will take a bit of time to feel at home. It’s hard to put into words what you feel when you live abroad, but you can be sure that going back home will be as hard as leaving it. If you ever need help, don’t hesitate to ask around you, many will be happy to help you. And if you’re looking for an espresso like we drink it here: good luck!

Good luck to you all, and I hope that in a few months, you will understand what I have shared with you in this letter, with a smile on your face when looking back on how nervous you were at the airport.
