Have you traveled abroad before? If so, where and why?
Yes, I’ve been to Canada, the Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic for my top-secret spy missions.
Have you studied abroad before? If so, where, when, and for what?
No, this is my first time studying abroad.
Where are you studying abroad this time and why did you choose this location & program?
I will be in Madrid, Spain and I chose this location because it will allow to practice the primary language I have studied as well as travel to other countries whose languages I have studied.
What are you most looking forward to during your study abroad program? What are you most nervous about?
I am most looking forward to making friends all over the world and travelling around Europe. I am most nervous about my ability to understand regional slang and strong accents in Spanish.
What are some of your interests and hobbies?
I love playing sports, especially rugby and soccer. I also really like to read and program.
If someone were to make a movie about your life, who would you want to play your character?
I would love if Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson played me because we look NOTHING alike and I would love to confuse everyone when the real me is shown in the credits or something.
Anything else you would like us to know about you?
I am a recovering Panda Express addict
