Have you studied abroad before? If so, where, when, and for what? 


Where are you studying abroad this time and why did you choose this location & program? 

Spain. I chose it because I’ve been told amazing things about its culture and I have friends there. Also because it is a very centric place to travel all over Europe.

What are you most looking forward to during your study abroad program? What are you most nervous about? 

I am looking forward to meeting lots of people and making lifelong friends. I also look forward to traveling whenever I have the opportunity. What I am most nervous about is how the grading system is in Spain, whether one test is the whole grade, or the have several tests, or grades are based on a project etc. because the classes I’ve had in UF so far the grades are based on many exams so I am used to that system.

What are some of your interests and hobbies? 

I love to travel, work out, go to social events and meet new people, try new food, shopping, and going to the beach/pool.

What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?

1. Get married 2. Pet an elephant 3. Ride a hot air balloon
