Simran – Studying Abroad in Hong Kong (SJSU Stories)


Hi, my name is Simran Sandhu. I’m a fourth year student here at San Jose State and I study nursing. Last year, I studied
abroad in Hong Kong and the reason why I did so was because I felt like I needed
clarity in my life and I felt like I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do
with my career and I needed inspiration outside of San Jose and so I decided to
go to Hong Kong and figure out my life and while I was there, I visited not only
Hong Kong but neighboring countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and going to those countries made me realize that I wanted to go into a career of health. I
saw these countries and I saw their healthcare systems and I saw that these
are things that I want to work on. I want to go into global health and
I thought nursing was the perfect choice for that so when I came back, I got into
the nursing program and I I think about my trip every day and I
think about why I’m doing what I’m doing and I think study abroad was the best
decision I ever made because of that and so I encourage a lot of students to
study abroad because if you really are not feeling inspired in life and you
don’t really know where you’re headed or what you want to do in your career, then
this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
