Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I wanted to push myself past my comfort zone of the Midwest. I think it’s increasingly important to become a global citizen in this age of technology; and the best place to gain new perspectives is immersion in someone else’s culture. I’m also looking to gain confidence in traveling to places where I may not speak the same language, or eat the same food.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
Prague is centrally located in Europe, so all of the other cities and countries I’m hoping to visit are only a few hours away via plane, train, or bus. Prague looks like it came straight out of a storybook, and I’m looking forward to learning the deep history surrounding this country.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I’m looking forward to traveling! COVID has put many trips on hold; to be able to travel safely across Europe has been a dream of mine for so long. I’m excited to make new friends, both from the US and the Czech Republic that may last a lifetime.
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I’m on the badminton club team at the University Of Iowa!
