Hello, my name is Jamario Fluker and I am currently a sophomore at UAB. My current major is International Studies and studying abroad is a degree requirement for us students. Studying Abroad would be a great opportunity to build my international relations, hospitality, and tourism liaison skills. All with the opportunity to immerse myself in a different culture. I’m from Birmingham, Alabama and would love the opportunity to travel outside of the South-East United States and become more culturally diversified. I think this is important for the people of the United States (Especially rural parts of South-East United States) to become more aware of societies and cultures outside of the USA. I chose Spain as my destination because we have an amazing Hispanic culture that is growing in the United States that I enjoy being apart of and this opportunity would increase my communication skills and cultural knowledge of this community. But studying abroad requires funds that I do not currently posses. With the combination of generous donations, student-aid, grants, scholarships, and other financial means this trip will one day become a reality. Thank you for reading and stay awesome! :)
