CEA CAPA Directory
Lia Barth, Content Creator - Videographer
What is one new experience you're hoping to have while abroad?
On the fun side, I'm hoping to experience a European soccer game and a bull fight! I took a year of Spanish studying bullfighting, so I'm really looking forward to watching it in action. On the more professional side, I'm looking forward to learning the differences and benefits of European work culture.
What class are you most looking forward to taking while studying abroad?
I'm most looking forward to the people that I meet and the individual growth that'll emerge from this "lone-traveler" era. I don't know anyone going on this trip, but I'm confident that I'll leave this experience with new friends and colleagues I can stay in touch with past the program end date. At the same time, I know in my four months away from home, I'll learn a lot about myself and others considering how much alone time I'll probably have commuting to work and in between hanging out with friends.
Why did you choose to study or intern abroad? and why did you choose your destination?
I've always wanted to study abroad, but I took the first step of applying to CEA CAPA when I heard my friend would study abroad. This was one of the few affordable options offered by my university, but I chose this specific program because I took Spanish in high school and wanted to intern abroad. I remember being unsure if I wanted to commit to a semester abroad for a while, but when I realized I'd have more fun in Spain than my home university and I'd regret not going abroad, I knew the choice was clear!
what is something you're passionate and excited about? (Hobbies, interests, causes, etc.)
Simply put, I'm passionate about helping others. I want everyone to feel like they have a seat at the table, and share the truth of Jesus Christ. I love to play music on my guitar and ukulele, and I enjoy getting competitive in sports ranging from pickleball to basketball. Also, if you love SpongeBob, The Office, or Hot Rod, we could be best friends.
