From Suburbia to a Global City - How Study Abroad Opened My World

Mar 28, 2019 10:53:00 AM / by CAPA Study Abroad Ambassadors

In this post, CAPA Alumna Julia Schroder reflects on her summer interning in Barcelona. From adjusting to a city after living in a very suburban neighborhood, to exploring the multiculturalism of the city and making connections through her internship, Julia reflects on how studying abroad in Barcelona shifted her mindset.

I am a native Arizonan, born and raised in the Phoenix area. I come from desert suburbia – a place where everyone has a swimming pool in their backyard and we have so much land we don’t even know what to do with it. We drive on wide streets with six lanes, and we never walk anywhere.

In Arizona – such a young place – it is easy to forget that most places aren’t designed like that. When I arrived in Barcelona last summer, the first thing that I noticed were the narrow streets and the old buildings. One of my favorite things to do was walk around the city and take it all in. If I wasn’t in a rush, I would head to my destination on foot. It never took me more than an hour to cross from one side of the city to the other.
