“You’ll find yourself. You will appreciate people, you will appreciate cultures, languages, and food on an entirely different level and will talk about these experiences for the rest of your life.” — Megan Baker

“There’s no way I can study abroad, I already work.”

If that sounds like you then listen up. You can study abroad while working not one, not two, but in Megan’s case three jobs and still find time study study abroad for an entire semester. That’s what Megan did.

In addition to learning about Megan’s German experience, we hear about Carrol University’s Cross Cultural Experience program, how Megan snorkeled her way through The Great Barrier Reef and her media de-recommendations.

We talk Turkish food in Germany, getting over the fear of studying abroad, and of course, how you can study abroad while working.
