University: University of Colorado Boulder
Major: Journalism
Study Abroad Location: London, England

What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
I’m excited to be introduced to new cultures and a new way of life. I’m really interested in wellness trends, and have found that Europe follows those trends much more differently than the United States does. I’m looking forward to trying new, healthy foods made with different ingredients and talking to people who actually live there about what they do to stay comfortable during their day-to-day life. I’m also really excited to travel because it’s so much easier to travel to different countries over there.
