What is one new experience you're hoping to have while studying abroad?
I want to make good friends with some of the locals there. I've never done this while traveling internationally as it was always for such a short period and I was with either family or friends, so I never pushed myself to. Yet, I think this is the perfect opportunity to finally do so, and what better way to learn about a culture than from the locals!
Why did you choose to study or intern abroad? And why did you choose your destination?
I chose to study abroad in Barcelona because I have a love for travel. In Spain there's a vast amount of things to experience. I also want to practice my Spanish speaking skills and meet new people!
What is something you're passionate and excited about? (Hobbies, interests, causes, etc.)
I've always loved writing about the human experience, so the opportunity to do so throughout this study abroad program is so exciting. As far as general hobbies, I'm a dancer and have been my whole life (most of the time competitively), I love fashion and makeup and hope to work in a magazine doing something with it one day, and I'm SUCH a foodie (hence Italy).
what class are you most looking forward to taking while studying abroad?
Definitely my food culture and lifestyle class, it sounds like so much fun.
