CEA CAPA Directory
Mercedez Stumpf, CEA MOJO Photographer
Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I wanted to study abroad to see more of the world and also to connect with my roots! My family and I are all from Hungary and this was the perfect opportunity for me to get to know my home better.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
Budapest is where I spent the first 11 years of my life, so I thought coming back at 21 and truly immersing myself in what it is like to live there would be a perfect way to rediscover who I am. Hungary is also such a beautiful place with so much to offer and I want to be able to showcase that to my American friends and family.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I'm looking forward to learning more about the history of Hungary, as well as just seeing exactly what it is like to go to college there! I already speak the language but I know that going to school and doing those everyday activities in my native language will just be so different from what I'm used to.
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I'm on the Women's Club Rugby team at Ithaca College and I'm one of the flankers in the scrum!
