One of my main hobbies is drawing. I like to draw people in particular and I am working on improving my knowledge of anatomy for more realistic results. I also love to read fiction of any genre. One more hobby I have is exploring new restaurants with friends.

What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I hope to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the differences in the United Kingdom. Studying abroad is a great opportunity for personal growth!

What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I would like to use the knowledge that I gain from my experiences and classes in the United Kingdom to write a fictional novel set in London. By observing the places and culture around me, I hope to make the setting in my novel more realistic.

What can we look forward to seeing in your posts?
I will be posting about my apartment in London, my trip to Stonehenge, and more! I am excited to share multiple aspects of my experiences with you all.

Anything else you’d like to say to people reading about you for the first time?
Thank you for joining me on this journey. I hope my experiences are helpful to you in some way!
