Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I chose to intern abroad to immerse myself in a different culture and to develop strong skills and experiences that will be valuable for success in the future. In the wake of a pandemic, it is not possible for me to study abroad, but interning abroad is a great substitute. I believe that immersing myself in a different culture will help me learn about myself and others.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
I chose Paris primarily because it is a city I recently visited. I visited Paris last December and was mesmerized by it. I am eager to learn more about Parisian culture and lifestyle.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I am most looking forward to the challenge. I know that I will face a lot of obstacles throughout my experience, but that is what I live for. Being out of my comfort zone is a component of growth.
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I performed twice during the holiday season at the White House with my high school choir.
