    Fantastic video, Meghan! We are so lucky to have such wonderful Peer Mentors.

  2. Nice video Meghan. I liked that you explained how dangerous situations are present in any country. I explain that to people all the time when they are like “what, you lived where?” I remember one time when I was living in Bogota, I was talking to someone in the city who told me that it was dangerous to live in Bogota haha (that person was a very rich old guy from a gated community in one of the wealthiest parts of the city, so again you have to always evaluate your sources of information).

    For people out there who are interested in studying abroad, don’t let other people’s opinions, which are often based off a very limited number of sources anyway, stop you from what most likely will be an eye-opening, enriching experience. Certainly, use common sense abroad. And before you go, sure, do your research and seek advice from people who have already lived abroad, but there are many wonderful experiences to have out there and if you are reading this post I hope you are researching around and making plans for travel and study soon! Suerte! 🙂

  3. Sorry for the delayed response…I just saw these comments today! Thank you very much for your feedback and I am glad everyone’s enjoying the video. It was a lot of fun to make! And I love any excuse to go through all of my photo albums from Argentina 🙂
