Your friend wants to join in the overseas exchange program, but it will lead to his graduation deferred for one year. If he asks for your opinions, will you encourage him to go exchange abroad?
I will definitely recommend him to go exchange abroad. I myself have exchanged for three times, each time to a different country. The most precious gift I have received from those experiences is that I have learnt to trust more in myself. Thrown into a totally different environment and culture, one can rely on nothing but his or her own potential. There will be various challenges, from fixing trivial problems like installing router to have WIFI at dorm room, to accepting different values and accommodating them properly into my own value system. I have been more open-minded, reflective, critical, and most importantly, more confident in myself. All those qualities are the bonuses from the experiences, which I think count for most of my achievement afterwards.
