Meet Hanna Okhrimchuk, an official CAPA blogger in Sydney for fall 2017:
University: University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, Carlson School of Management
Major: Marketing, Finance, and International Business
Study abroad location: Sydney, Australia

What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
Besides Sydney itself, I am very excited to have an opportunity to intern abroad.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
Traveling, cooking, movies
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I am striving to gain more confidence and become more proactive and just work on my personal growth as well as my career-related experience.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
Help the company to benefit from my knowledge and experience; work on a significant project and make some difference for the company and their clients.
What can we look forward to reading about in your posts?
I would like to write about most interesting places and activities to do, side trips one can take, and some general expectations and realities, and how to prepare to going abroad.
Anything else you’d like to say to people reading for the first time?
I have travelled to many places already and can compare different details from food and people, to experience of short vs long stay abroad. However, to be honest, I don't quite have an understanding of what I am going to write about and what the style of my blog posts will be. I think it will be determined once I start my experience; but I think my readers can expect to read posts that will be composed from my feelings, thoughts, and impressions I will gain, and not just an overview of basic facts one can just find in Google.
