On Study Abroad in Sydney: A Conversation With Program Coordinator Laurence Braude

Nov 21, 2018 4:16:00 PM / by Martyn Megaloudis

Martyn opens up about his study abroad and cultural experience in Sydney in this conversation with Laurence Braude, Program Coordinator at CAPA Sydney. He also reflects on what it's like to adapt to living on the other side of the world, the insights and differences between the East Coast and Sydney, and how Sydney exemplifies friendliness and openness.

For this week’s blog post I had a conversation with Laurence Braude who is a Program Coordinator here at CAPA Sydney. I’ve transcribed most of our conversation (for everyone’s sake, I tried to remove all of the “likes” that I say), and it’s definitely a bit of a read so strap in! We touch on a few topics from adjusting to a new culture to the difference between the U.S and Sydney. I hope you enjoy reading this conversation as much as I did actually having it. Without further delay, let's jump in!

Headshot_CTA_DarinSmithGaddis

Meet Darin Smith-Gaddis, CAPA's first Institutional Relations Manager for Equity and Inclusion InitiativesSince his start with CAPA in 2014, Darin has focused on building relationships with institutional partners. Drawing from his experience in developing key programs for education and diversity and inclusion efforts, he is committed to helping others understand and expand access for underrepresented students to study abroad. Below, he shares what led to his current role at CAPA, why study abroad is important, and how educators and institutions can be more inclusive. 

CAPA WORLD: Tell us a bit about yourself and your work with CAPA.
DARIN SMITH-GADDIS: I work on Equity and Inclusion initiatives as an Institutional Relations Manager for CAPA. I’ve had the opportunity to travel most of my life, starting with many trips from my home, Anchorage, Alaska, to visit relatives and friends in other states and other countries. I participated in my first study abroad in high school, spending an academic year in Brasilia, Brazil. After that I guess I never stopped. I participated in two study abroad programs in undergrad to the Czech Republic and several former Yugoslav countries and just kept going. By 30 I’d flown over 1 million miles getting to know the diverse communities and cultures that make up our world. At CAPA my primary goal is to increase accessibility for students to study abroad. Working with faculty, administrators and students, I try to bring study abroad concepts to fruition, create connections that lead to programs, and develop solutions to challenges to break down barriers. This means making sure our partners are informed and supported as they pursue their respective institutional missions.

CAPA WORLD: Tell us a bit about yourself and some of your hobbies and interests and where you’re from originally. What’s the coolest thing about living in Boston? 
TAYLOR NOLAN: Hi I am Taylor! I am from Rhode Island, went to college in South Carolina, and now I'm back in the great white north. Ever since I was little and I took "vacations" to Boston, I knew I wanted to live here. I love the hustle and bustle of the city. My hobbies involve doing anything social. I love to meet new people and chat over coffee for hours. The coolest part about living in Boston is that there are endless possibilities of activities to do: going to museums, concerts, games, restaurants, views, tours, coffee shops, etc...
