One can buy all the riches in the world but one cannot buy experience or patience. These things one has to learn by being in the situation. The exchange has made me strong, more independent and responsible. Exchange year teaches you patience which stays there with you for a lifetime. You start learning things, make friends and make a great bond with your family. You stop expecting from people and become happy in small things. Once you are back home, you won’t see many physical changes but there’ll be many changes in your personality and at one point even you won’t be able to notice those small changes nor you will be able to say it to someone. It will take some time for you to realize but don’t worry, you will be totally happy with these changes and after realizing the difference you will see them benefitting yourself.”
