My Travel Story

by: Brianne Derby Start Date: May 23, 2018 - End Date: Nov 22, 2018
I am currently a second year psychology student at Dalhousie University. Though I am passionate about my studies and love learning, over the past couple of months i have felt stuck and overwhelmed. It is for this reason I chose to apply to study abroad at Glasgow University.

I have always had a passion for travel. Growing up I have visited various states in the US, toured around Europe, and built a women’s shelter in Ecuador. I believe that traveling is excellent way to meet new people, build new connections, and learn from others. I am looking forward to building new connections around the world and discovering new interests. Being a psychology major aspiring to become a clinical psychologist, I believe Glasgow to be an amazing opportunity for me. Going abroad would help me understand how different cultures think and how people around the world may process their life experiences differently. Working abroad after university has always been a passion of mine and I believe that studying in Glasgow would allow me to excel in my future endeavours as a clinical psychologist. Most importantly howverver, I believe that studying abroad will push me outside of my comfort zone and reignite my passion for life. After all "we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us".
