Living abroad for an extended period of time can be a challenge for anyone. Especially if you’re in high school, your friends are so important to you. The Expat Youth Scholarship (EYS) contest is sponsored by Clements Worldwide, a provider of international insurance.

Clemnts want you to write about a calculated risk that you have taken while living in another country. They say: “Adapting to a new culture can be a challenging experience, but it can also be a catalyst for new and enriching opportunities. Living abroad can help you learn a new language, take on a new challenge, volunteer for a great cause, and so much more. Being an expat can open your eyes to things you never thought to try.”
