Study Abroad Poem

Study Abroad Poem - A digital manipulation by T Newfields (née NITTA Hirou)
I want to study abroad
the shopping is great

I want to venture overseas
later may be too late

I want to head to foreign lands
for adventure, romance, and fun

Take me across the ocean
to tropical beaches
warm waters, and sun

Help me get overseas:
a holiday with academic credit
sounds cool

I yearn to be “international” -
not jes’ a monolingual fool

So many different students
So many different goals

Reflecting on this
ask yourself
when you study abroad
what outcomes will your aspire for?
what will be your roles?
