Fernanda Sanchez, Alumni Ambassador
What was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My favorite class while abroad was my visual fashion merchandising class as not only was the professor passionate about his career but it was also the most engaging class. While I wasn't the most knowledgeable in fashion, the course was fun and interactive which made everyone in that classroom enjoy the course.
How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
I engaged with the local community by taking the metro every day, this helped a lot when knowing the way of life in my location. I also learned a lot while grocery shopping, laundry, and even going to the local bakery or coffee shop. Having this engagement that may seem small really was the best experience while being abroad.
