"My experience so far in Denmark has been remarkable. Not to say that it hasn’t been difficult, which it has, but I have gained so much more from this year abroad than I could have possibly gained from staying at home. It has been a truly eye-opening experience and definitely made me a more independent person. I’ve had many opportunities to travel Europe and go to new places I’ve never been before. I have also been able to try many new things and live life differently than I’m used to. For example, I started playing handball in Denmark, which is something that I can’t really do in Canada as it is not a popular sport. I have also gotten used to biking everywhere and grown to like it, another thing that I really don’t do in Canada. Furthermore, my Danish is getting better and better every day, which is a really cool feeling.
The differences between Denmark and Canada are endless: the school system, the weather, the culture, the nature, etc. But I have learned to adapt and become very open-minded. Danes are such lovable and “hyggelig” people! My host family has been incredibly wonderful to me and taken me in as one of their own. For that I am truly grateful. I can honestly say that my experiences in Denmark will be unforgettable and these ten months will remain with me forever."
