Why did you choose to study or intern abroad?
Studying abroad in Spain during my time in college is a bucket list experience for me. With my interest in sociology, I am consistently curious as to why people are the way they are, while considering the influence external factors may have upon someone's identity and livelihood. I hope to become more aware of different perspectives and approaches to life while immersing myself in Spanish culture!
Why did you choose your study/intern destination?
I selected CEA CAPA's Communication, Media Studies, and Tourism study abroad program in Seville, Spain because of the specific course offerings and my desire to develop more confidence in my daily Spanish communication. It was crucial for me to pick a program that allows me to earn upper division credit that transfers back to my degree. Further, after reviewing course syllabi, I was intrigued by courses such as, "Seville: Culture, Identity & Citizenship in the City" or hands-on volunteer work in, "international Service Learning: Society, Inequality & Social Exclusion," where I hope to become more connected to the community by learning through engagement.
What are you most looking forward to during your study/intern experience?
I am eager to establish a new routine during my study abroad experience and encourage myself to strike a balance between planning and spontaneity. More specifically, the food, culture, and tapas scene in Seville excites me! I am also looking forward to participating in the various activities and holidays that are so important to the history and culture of Seville.
what's a Fun Fact about you (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I love writing palindrome poems. Trying to make them coherent regardless of if you read the piece from beginning to end or end to beginning is a fun and challenging game for me!
