About Me

LogoGreetings readers! My name is Adam Rahaman. I am a 22 year old, recent graduate and a  Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship alum from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri.   I created this blog  to share my experiences as a first time study abroad student and to fulfill my post travel follow-on project  for receiving the Gilman Scholarship Award. My country of study was Thailand. Aside from what a quick Wikipedia search on Thailand could tell you,  I knew little about the country before arriving there.   It was my first time ever traveling alone internationally and only the second time I had ever boarded a plane.   By sharing my experiences and advice in this blog, I hope to encourage more students to study abroad as part of completing a rewarding, maturing, and resume highlighting opportunity of higher education.  I hope to inspire students who may think that studying abroad is a dream out of their reach.  With focus, diligence and a bit of luck, they can make it a reality!
