Now that I’m back home in my hometown of Saint Paul, MN, I truly miss the amazing experiences I had in Singapore. As my first trip to Southeast Asia, it will be one I will never forget. Not only have I learned more about international business and the rising GDP growth of East Asia but I was also able to try new foods, make new friends from Singapore and USC and connect with alumni.
There are so many things I have been able to take away from this trip. I feel like I finally have somewhat acquired those global eyes Professor Voigt lectured about. To see the many advances in industrialization, technology and business practices is astonishing and makes me wonder how Singapore was able to transform so quickly within a 50 year span. I awe at the capability of human beings when we really work together.
Many people have asked how my trip was now that I’m back in the States. And I simply tell them it was honestly indescribable. I can’t put what I experienced into words. I am just so grateful that I was able to go on this trip as a freshmen in college.
But man I miss the restaurant Pepper Lunch Express! I’ll definitely have to go back and reunite with that delectable pepper beef dish.
Until next time Singapore!
