stated: "Study abroad provided me fuel for
wanting to learn about new cultures, people,
and continue to travel and discover new
things," which lead him to
enrolling in a management course that would
allow him to travel to Taiwan during his
spring break, the following spring.
He was able to
visit various businesses in the financial
services industry and local attractions.
Since graduation he has moved to Orlando,
Florida where he is pursing a career as a
Commercial Insurance Broker.
in Florida where there is a very diverse
population, it is nice to share cultural
experiences with others. From studying
abroad, I have learned how to find common
ground with anyone, and that a simple
conversation can lead to a good business
deal and great friendship," explained Erik.
