Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I chose to study abroad because I have always loved traveling and learning about new cultures. I think that studying abroad gives students a chance to fully immerse themselves into a new culture and experience something unique. It definitely takes courage to move somewhere unfamiliar but is very rewarding.

Why did you choose your study/intern city?
I chose to study in Paris for many reasons, and my main reason is that I have been studying the French language and culture for 7 years. I'm very excited to dive into French fashion and food. I've also always wanted to live in a city, and Paris seems like a beautiful one.

What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I am most looking forward to getting uncomfortable and learning from it. I want to come out of this experience knowing how to communicate with strangers and with different cultures. I think that there is a lot of value in putting oneself in a completely new environment then figuring things along the way.

Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I grew up in California and Singapore, and I'm fortunate to have had the chance to travel to many countries at a young age. I love to hike, surf, travel, and go out with friends. One of my favorite things is being an older sister to my seven younger siblings.
