Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
Originally, I chose to study abroad because of my love for traveling and experiencing new places. I wanted to push myself outside of my comfort zone to meet new people and be engulfed in a strong European culture while exploring a new city and surrounding countries.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
Barcelona is such an international city with a melting pot of various European cultures. I decided to go to Barcelona because it had everything I wanted in a study abroad city: local Spanish culture, strong business classes, beautiful beaches, rich European history, expansive inter-country travel system, and a CEA study center!
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I am most excited to explore Barcelona and live like a local college student. I am also looking forward to being able to easily travel to other Spanish cities and taking short train rides or easy flights to various surrounding European countries!
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I am passionate about travelling and spending time with my friends, family and of course my goldendoodle. I also love trying new foods and playing tennis when I can find time in between studying!
