What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I am so excited to live somewhere that is brand new to me and I cannot wait to get to know London living like a local.
What are three of your hobbies and interests?
Three of my hobbies include photography, travel, and writing.
What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
The goal I have for myself during my time in London is to fully immerse myself in the culture, the history, and to see as many places as possible. I look forward to going to try different restaurants, museums, and different neighborhoods across the city.
What’s one professional goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
The professional goal that I have for myself while abroad is to establish a strong communications network in London and to successfully continue to build a strong foundation for my career. I am eager to learn how businesses in the United Kingdom differ from those in America.
What can we look forward to seeing in your videos?
I want to share all of the great things about my adventures and day-to-day life abroad so you can expect each post to be different. They will definitely be fun to watch as they will all be on different topics each week.
Anything else you’d like to say to people watching for the first time?
I hope you all enjoy following along with my summer in London. It is going to be great to share it on an accessible social media platform, and I want to encourage others to take the opportunity to study abroad.
