  • What is your year and academic concentration?
    I am a 4th year, soon to be 5th year, Chemical Engineering major with a minor in Packaging Science and Business Administration.
  • Have you traveled abroad before? If so, where and for what purpose?
    Yes! I have traveled abroad multiple times. I was boring in Venezuela and have traveled there many times to visit family. However, traveling is one of my favorite things to do so I try to take a vacation trip at least once a year. I have been to many places but for example last summer I went to Paris, Madrid, Budapest and Istanbul.
  • Have you studied abroad before? If so, where and what did you study?
    Technically yes, I have studied abroad but not in the way you would traditionally think of a study abroad program. I actually lived in Madrid, Spain when I was 12 and completed 7th and 8th there.
  • Where are you studying abroad and why did you choose to study there?
    I am studying abroad in Paris, France! I chose this program because it had always been a dream of mine to study abroad in Paris.  I’m excited for the change of pace that is living in a city and being surrounded by art and history.
  • What are you most looking forward to during your study abroad program?
    I’m looking forward to a lot of things but mainly improving my French and having the ability to travel to other countries with ease. I have a very long list of places that I am very excited to visit but will also make the most of living in Paris and soaking up all of the art and fashion culture.
  • What are some of your interests and hobbies?
    My hobbies/interests are traveling & exploring, cooking & baking (eating in general), running, reading, and photography.
