Sophie Moore, Alumni Ambassador
how did you engage with the local community while abroad?
I engaged with the local community in Granada by joining the local Ultimate Frisbee team. I practiced with the team Mondays and Thursdays and attended one tournament hosted by the team in Granada which helped me see a different side of the city. This team is where I made connections with locals while I played a sport I love. I'm so glad I had this experience and highly encourage anyone studying abroad to be apart of the local community to understand where you are living from every angle.
what's one story or important aspect you always tell people about your time abroad?
I always talk about the time my roommate and I took a 24 hour bus ride to Paris, Amsterdam, and Brussels which turned out to be one of the best trips of my life. No bathroom or outlets for the majority of the bus ride made me and my roommate strategize our water and food consumption while also getting to be very creative to find ways to pass time.
