Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I've lived in the same suburb of Texas my entire life and have always had a desire to immerse myself in a completely different culture from mine. Studying abroad was an opportunity to do that while also getting my education, and the benefits of going abroad in your early twenties are unmatched.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
I wanted a place where I could find it all - beach, city, mountains, etc. The French Riviera is the most beautiful places I've ever seen, and the culture of the South of France is so dreamy. Antibes has the small-town, laid-back energy that I love, while also being centrally located near all the other European locations I hope to visit in my time abroad.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
During my abroad experience, I'm most looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone in many different ways. Through a new language, a new city, a new school and new systems, I'm certain there will be countless uncomfortable moments, and that excites me. I can't wait to look back on my growth throughout this semester. Nothing grows in comfort zones!
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I love all things aesthetically pleasing. Coffee shops, charcuterie boards, neutral colors, stationery, etc. The little things are the most important to me and spark unnecessary amounts of joy.
