Studying at college in another state is stressful, but studying over the Atlantic Ocean literally means that your homesickness will be severe. Samantha Gross, an American college student who was studying in London, felt extremely lonely abroad and missed her family really bad, especially when the Passover came. Obviously, because Samantha was so far away from home she wasn’t able to celebrate this holiday with her family. But somehow she managed to find people to celebrate Passover with and here’s the story Samantha has posted on her Twitter. The Typical Student team is sharing Samantha's insights with you.
