What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I am most excited about living in a completely new place and being exposed to and immersed in a culture that I have been curious about and admired for as long as I can remember. I look forward to communicating with others, learning about their own unique cultures, and what it means to be a member of the London community. I’m excited to try traditional British foods and drinks at British pubs and restaurants, shop where Londoners shop, live in my flat, work in a British work environment, and really just become a true Londoner.
