Dean Houlbrough: #StudyAbroadBecause It Challenges You to Embrace New Perspectives

Dean Holbrough is a Canadian musician who took his studies abroad to the UK. Listening to Dean's story introduced me to a whole new perspective on what it is like to study in a different country. Studying abroad opens your eyes to a variety of new cultures and experiences, but also imposes many challenges as well. In the future, Dean plans on pursuing a career in the music industry.

When my husband and I decided to do this six months of travel before settling in Arizona, there were many things we didn't consider. 

For instance, we didn't consider not doing it. You see, we are very good at deciding and fairly good at planning, but not strong at considering. Considering often comes before (and continues during) planning. Considering requires some degree of hesitancy.

These days we can’t go more than four minutes on any social media platform without noticing someone sharing about doing life their own way. Any number of hashtags, from vanlife to roadschooling and living off the grid, pop up to intrigue viewers to follow the journey of those choosing to do their own thing. Perhaps we’re moving into a time of life where the non-traditional is becoming traditional, or perhaps, if that’s not the case, it’s the bubble in which my brain wants to live.

News of natural disasters comes from Turkey and Syria and New Zealand. There’s the ongoing war in Ukraine and strife in Myanmar and Ethiopia. There are shootings, arguments, food insecurity, racism, political division around the globe, the ongoing effects of climate change, anger in public and private life...

All of which can make for a rather bleak scenario. Musicians live through these things, too. Often, there are threads of hope and resilience to be found in what they create.

Write your own story—then go live it

Travel has always been my vice. Throw in dark chocolate chips, avocado, yoga, beach days, and it’s pretty much me in a nutshell. These days, we can add water bottle stickers to that list, so when Live a Great Story showed up on my radar, they had me at stickers.
