HOW DID YOU ENGAGE WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WHILE ABROAD?
While in Barcelona I engaged in the local community in various ways. One of my favorite memories was seeing and experiencing Sant Joan, which recognizes the first night of summer. All the locals surround themselves with friends and family to celebrate throughout the night.
WHAT'S ONE STORY OR IMPORTANT ASPECT YOU ALWAYS SHARE ABOUT YOUR TIME ABROAD?
I will always tell people about the connections I made while studying abroad. I had the most amazing roommates, coworkers, and neighbors while in Barcelona. We did not know each other prior, but became friends instantly. They made my abroad experience even more enjoyable and memorable.
