CEA CAPA Directory
Zoe Marrero, CEA MOJO Photographer
Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I chose to study abroad because I believe that in order to fully experience life, you need to step outside of what you've known your whole life. I have never been to Europe and I've always dreamed of going to Barcelona. From the minute I saw pictures of it, I was compelled. I felt like I wouldn't forgive myself if I didn't do everything in my power to go! There's a certain type of growth that comes with not only moving to another country, but also by doing so on your own, without your friends and family. You are forced to become your own "teacher" and student, as you learn with each mistake you make- all the while teaching yourself that no matter what the challenge is you will figure it out!
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
I chose Barcelona because I was mesmerized by its art and architecture. I've always been interested in beautiful things and after looking at all my study abroad options, Barcelona stood out to me in a way that no other cities/countries did.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I'm looking forward to being able to meet people from all over the world and to try new foods. I would love to meet people from other countries because it's such a unique experience that I've never been able to have because I've lived in the same state all my life and even when I went to school out of state, I hadn't really met international students. Also, I'm a very picky eater but I decided enough was enough and that I want to try new foods that way I can change that habit of mine!
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
A fun fact about me is that I love dressing up and taking pictures! When you look good you feel good is a motto I live by. I love listening to music and going out with friends.
