Meet Jamie Taylor (she/her), an official CAPA vlogger in Dublin, Ireland for Spring 2020:
University: The New School
Study Abroad Location: Dublin, Ireland
Internship or volunteer placement: N/A
What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I’m excited about being immersed in a whole new culture and place to experience! I can’t wait to experience a different school and learning environment compared to what my college teaching style is. I also want to try as much food as I can while I’m in Ireland.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
I really enjoy watching and playing sports (I’m a very big Philadelphia sports fan!) so I’m very excited to see sports in Ireland! I love photography and videography, which I’m very passionate about since I’m majoring in it. I enjoy traveling with friends and creating lasting memories and experiences!
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
One personal goal of mine is to be more confident in being independent. I’d like to be comfortable with going to new places by myself and adventuring around. I believe traveling to Ireland by myself and living abroad will help with this personal goal of mine.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
I really hope I learn a new skill in my photography work from experiencing a new environment. Either in the editing of my photographs or in the production of making them to create a new style I might not have used before.
What can we look forward to seeing in your videos?
I fully plan on traveling around Ireland while I have this opportunity so I want to vlog all those adventures. I really want to experience hidden gems in Ireland by asking locals what those would be. I also want to show my editing skills I learn in classes with the vlogs that I post of my experience!
Anything else you’d like to say to people reading about you for the first time?
I hope you enjoy the content I post as I study abroad and experience a new country!
