What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I can hardly wait to start exploring and discovering new places, people, and cultures! This is such an amazing opportunity to see the world through a new lens and I can't wait to take full advantage of it.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
Dancing - whenever and wherever, writing [on my blog], and yoga.
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I hope that this experience allows me to dive out of my comfort zone and define what adventure and growth truly mean for me.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
Professionally, I want to use the semester to foster my love for children and mental health and I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the collective perspective on the importance of children's mental health in different parts of the world.
What can we look forward to seeing in your videos?
I can't wait to discuss with you the many quirks and charms of London that I discover in the next few months. Not only that, but I plan to take you on my travel endeavors up, down, and all around the continent, searching for hidden gems for foodies, nature buffs, music experts, and everything in between.
Anything else you’d like to say to people watching for the first time?
Thanks for hanging out for a few minutes and taking a peek into my experience across the pond!
