ISSOS is a great program because there is so much variety at the school. ISSOS has totally changed the way I see the world. I have different opinions on topics because of the experiences I have had at ISSOS. I feel that as long as I put myself out there when I am at ISSOS, I can do whatever I want and they are just going to help me to achieve things. That's really the greatest thing ever. I love all the friends I meet there and we all agree immediately that after one week it feels like we've known each other forever. It's almost magical.
