Course: How to prepare to study abroad

When I was nineteen, I moved away from everything I had ever known to start a history degree program in Wales. While living abroad, I had the opportunity to work at my university’s study abroad office with other international students. I also maintained a blog dedicated to capturing and learning from my experiences. The lessons I learned while traveling forever altered the course of my life. I am now a firm advocate for student travel and study abroad. You might find me on my campus studying the history of Armenia, reading children’s stories from Rwanda, or experimenting with a Malaysian curry recipe—all while planning my next adventure, of course!
