Generation Study Abroad Video Transcript

Introduction music plays while the Institute of International Education logo shows on the screen, followed by the Generation Study Abroad logo

Multiple people speak throughout the video

Multi-dimensional. Artistic. Uniquely mine. Insightful. Eye-opening. Broadening. Indescribable: Let’s leave it at that, indescribable.

If I had to sum up my study abroad experience in one word, I would say, transformational. Transformational. That’s it.

The most important skills, I would say professional skills and life skills that I gained from studying abroad would be problem solving, confidence, language skills, having your perspective broadened, being culturally sensitive,  adaptability.

There’s a lot that can come from these experiences, but I think the most transferable is communication in general.

Even within your own culture … just the ability to read social clues and to understand – kind of – have the emotional intelligence to understand what other people are thinking and expecting. And understanding that everything has a backstory. It makes it a lot easier to work on a team. And study abroad is the methodology by which you take something out of a book and you actually live it.

Hi, my name is Andrea. My name is Kyle. My name is Vanessa. My name is James King. I am Mignonne Fowlis. My name is Schuyler. My name is Brenton Harper, and I am, and I am Generation Study Abroad. I’m Generation Study Abroad, Generation Study Abroad, Generation Study Abroad, Generation Study Abroad. And I am, Generation Study Abroad.

Music plays as video concludes. The Generation Study Abroad logo and (hashtag)generationstudyabroad displays on the screen.
