Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I view study abroad as a time to immerse myself in the Spanish culture. It is a time to learn, a time grow, and a time to make everlasting memories. Although I have always loved traveling and exploring new places my whole life, study abroad is an opportunity that I know cannot be replicated. Certainly, I could not miss out.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
I fell in love with the Spanish culture in high school. I aspired to continue my studies in college and eventually make it abroad. It was my goal to one day reach las calles after years of reading, listening, watching, and learning about the culture.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
Since I have never traveled to Spain, I am looking forward to making each day unique. While this will come with discomfort, lack of direction, and many other challenges (I am sure of), new experiences also include new friends, perspectives, and endless stories to tell after departure! Additionally, I am looking forward to visiting other cities and even countries!
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I have been a vegetarian/vegan for 7 years, so I am always on the lookout for a good vegan restaurant! I also am addicted to hot yoga; after 5 years of being a yogi I received my certification to become an instructor! Lastly, I LOVE coffee, chocolate and dogs.
