WHY BE MOBILE?
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must
run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the
slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle... when the
sun comes up, you'd better be running.
African proverb

- Student experiences -
 I learned from different cultures about their history, values and lifestyles
 I changed so many wrong assumptions about what I used to call
“foreigners”
 I learned a new language and feel great about it
 I met some cool people and still keep in touch with some of them
 I found it easier to get a job when I got back home after my study exchange
 I feel that I understand people better and can better respond to them
 I travelled a lot and learned about national customs
 I feel more independant and confident after going abroad to study.
