Tristan Chiancone, Alumni Ambassador
how did you engage with the local community while abroad?
I went to countless markets while studying abroad in London. My favorite market was Camden Market. I would always go there when I needed a break from work. I loved walking into every shop and chatting with the vendors.
what's one story or important aspect you always share about your time abroad?
I learned a lot about myself while studying abroad. I grew a lot but the one thing I really saw change was how much more independent I am. I was terrified to travel alone in the beginning and it really stopped me from doing a lot, but by the end of my semester I was taking solo trips to countries that don't speak English.
