What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I’m most excited for the zoo and wildlife park events to see all of the animals that I wouldn’t normally get to see! My mom and best friend couldn’t wait for me to see koalas and kangaroos, so I want to take pictures for them. :)

What are three of your hobbies and interests?
I throw javelin for Pitt, I take spinning classes (and I’m also a certified instructor), and I love all desserts and sweets!

What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
To feel like a local and be able to know where I’m going without constantly checking maps.

What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I hope to be able to put my coursework to good use and achieve quantifiable results for my company.

What can we look forward to reading about in your posts?
I’m sure you’ll read a lot about food, sports, and helpful things I’ve learned.

Anything else you’d like to say to people reading for the first time?
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy!
