Meet Mickenzie Babb (she/her), an official CAPA TikToker in London, England for Summer 2022:
University: University of Minnesota – Rochester
Major: Health Sciences
Study Abroad Location: London, England
What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I’m most excited to explore London and meet new people. My campus is small, so I feel like this is truly going to be an outstanding college experience.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
Three of my hobbies and interests are shopping, hiking, and going to new restaurants for new experiences.
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
One of my personal goals is to become a more independent person. I used to be a very independent person, but after living with roommates I became a codependent person. I’m really hoping to get back in touch with this part of myself by being in a new place without knowing anyone.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve during your CAPA program?
One professional goal I hope to achieve is to be immersed in a different healthcare system to learn by. This is important to me to see how other countries are working with their healthcare systems instead of just reading about it.
What can we look forward to seeing in your vlogs?
In my posts you can look forward to hearing about the cultural differences I’ll have to adapt to, seeing what a study abroad student does in a day, and I’m also hoping to go to Scotland while I’m in London.
Anything else you'd like to say to people reading/watching for the first time?
I’m very excited to learn about the culture of London and sharing this experience to allow others to see that through my content.
