“Live your life in curiosity. As we get older, we lose this sense of awe and childlike wonder, because we become comfortable and content in our bubble. IFSA and studying abroad removes this bubble and broadens your horizons to different worldviews and cultures. As your understanding of other cultures increases, so will your understanding of yourself and your culture.”


Ethan was recruited in 2020 to play college soccer in the United States. His first year was spent in Arkansas playing for Harding University. He then transferred to Dordt University, a small private Christian institution, in Iowa. Ethan is a marketing and finance major.
