what's one story or important aspect you always tell people about your time abroad?
Sydney is a huge city to live in. I explored so many different areas alone or with friends. One minute you might be in the city and the next you could be at the beaches. It really is a diverse place not only in terms of the people, but also the environment. Some of my fondest memories of my time abroad were spending time at the magnificent beaches or indulging in delicious foods across neighborhoods. On top of this, I loved going to the flea markets spread across the city. There was one in particular you'd always catch me at on Saturday mornings. Lastly, I was thrilled to explore the music that Sydney and even more, Australia had to offer. I want to work in the music industry and having the opportunity to attend lots of events with so many different talented artists within the country broadened my perspectives. Now, I hope to come back and be apart of the industry there.
how did you engage with the local community while abroad?
Through my internship abroad, I engaged with members of the local community abroad. I worked alongside all sorts of individuals with diverse backgrounds from Australia. This helped me learn about the workplace differences abroad vs. at home. Additionally, through exploring the city and attending events outside of school, I met even more Australians who taught me so much about their world and lifestyle. Some of these encounters even turned into lifelong friendships that I will be forever grateful for.
