Kiwis and the Big City: Kristina Polk's Off-Campus Experience
While preparing to join the AustraLearn program at the University of Auckland, I began to research the Kiwi culture, but could only read the descriptions of "laid back" and "thrill seeking" so many times. I departed the United States mid-February 2011, not too sure what would come of this adventure. While meeting new people is always good fun, it was a bit scary leaving all my friends and family behind for five months.
