Here are three crucial things I’ve noticed so far among others.
Note #1: San Francisco is highly expensive by any means, compared to other cities. It matches NYC.
The city is outstandingly expensive in almost every area you can think of. In particular the rent for accommodation, not only in the city itself but also in the surrounded bay area. One of my roommates and I were subsequently looking through a lot of different places until we found one, meeting the group’s desires and requirements.
Note #2: San Francisco is pretty international, open-minded and natives are actively interested in the mechanisms of the German education system.
I’ve had a lot of conversations leading into the German school system. Even though Germany is considered as a small country, in regards to its geographic size, it is highly respected by Americans. This contradicts the common German prejudgement towards the American mentality.
Note #3: The Entrepreneurial Spirit spread out from the Silicon Valley throughout the whole city is overwhelming and inspiring by any active means.
Once you’re in San Francisco, you’ll be capable of experiencing the so-called Entrepreneurial Spirit. Spread by the most breakthrough companies in the world, San Francisco has this unique, awesome atmosphere, which is probably very rare found elsewhere.
What this all amounts to is that attending San Francisco, in particular, the Silicon Valley, might be highly beneficial for your Personal Development.
