I’ve always wanted to go to the United States since I was a kid because of its reputation for education. When I came across UMass Boston, I knew it was the perfect place. The UMass Boston Navitas GSSP staff and the professors are all friendly. I love how diverse it is! I feel like I am in an international community. I don’t feel secluded at all.
