Studying abroad in Taiwan has been an incredible and eye-opening experience for me. I have been exploring the country's rich culture, delicious food, and beautiful scenery. However, one of the biggest lessons I have learned is the importance of striking a balance between exploration and responsibilities. At first, I was eager to say yes to every opportunity and adventure that came my way, but I quickly realized that this left me feeling overwhelmed with coursework and made it difficult to form deep meaningful bonds with my study abroad mates.

This experience has taught me the importance of prioritizing my goals and personal needs, rather than trying to do everything at once. While it's important to take risks and push your boundaries, it's equally important to discover what matters most to you personally, as there simply isn't enough time to do it all. Overall, my study abroad experience has both been challenging and rewarding and I look forward to future growth and lessons.
