What is one story or important aspect you always share about your time abroad?
As a person of color, we are constantly discouraged to virtue out to seek higher learning opportunities. Going abroad changed the narrative that people like me cannot afford these things or that we should not seek out these opportunities. CEA truly helped me realize that there are multiple ways I could afford to study abroad.
What was your favorite study abroad class and why?
My favorite study abroad class was Medical Health Spanish. My professor was highly hands-on and always had some type of fun activity waiting for us every morning. The class was engaging and I was encouraged to consistently try my best.
