  • Why she chose to study in Chile and take classes in Spanish
  • How the slang was very hard to understand at first
  • Living situation – Her decision to leave her host family and room with a local Chilean
  • Advice to people who are going to do a home stay
  • Her recommendations for understanding the perception of time in Latin America
  • Nikki’s volunteer experience with English Opens Doors at a middle/high school as an English teacher assistant
  • Her first time backpacking in Torres del Paine in Patagonia – Crazy! You have to hear this.
  • The one thing she’d do differently if she could go back in time
  • Advice for making the most out of your study abroad experience
  • Her experience with AmeriCorps in Colorado and how she transitioned into working with Go Abroad
  • Her recommendation for entering the field of international education (great advice!)
