Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I've always wanted to study abroad. Beginning from the time I was little, seeing college students embark on a crazy journey to a foreign country seemed like an adventure you can only watch in a movie or read in a really good book. Now, it's really happening! Studying abroad is like writing, acting, and producing an action-thriller movie of my very own!
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
You would typically think that anybody who is studying abroad in France would be studying in the country's capital. Well, I've never been somebody who follows the normal methods of living. I chose to study in Antibes, France, at the Skema Business School because of the amazing culture in the south of France. Here, I am able to venture out of my comfort zone and witness the amazing opportunities that France has to offer!
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I am mostly looking forward to the adventure aspect of studying abroad. More specifically, I look forward to making lifelong friends as well as exploring Europe, and most importantly, I'll have stories to bring back home with me when I return to the States!
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I absolutely LOVE to thrift. Finding old things in a store like artwork, clothing, and even books is so interesting. It's like diving into history without paying museum entry fees!
