My Travel Story

by: Anna Vazquez Start Date: May 18, 2017 - End Date: Jun 17, 2017
First, I would like to thank you for your interest in my study abroad campaign. As a junior at West Chester University majoring in Communication studies I have had the opportunity to gain a college experience that has allowed to grow individually and intellectually. Approaching senior year an opportunity I have always hoped to experience is to study abroad. I have had the opportunity to recieve finacial aid for my studying expenses and managed to save for my flight. Currently, I am saving for my expenses. As a full-time college student that works part-time, receiving financial support for my trip will be extraordinarily helpful.

I will be studying abroad at Richmond, The American International University of London studying Fashion Marketing and Merchandising. I will be traveling for three weeks throughout Europe to London, Paris, Milan, and Florence. This course combines traditional classroom learning with visits to fashion museums, fashion manufacturers and fashion collections. I will learn how to market fashion in the 21st century, visual merchandising, fashion branding and how the industry in Europe differs from that of the U.S. I will see for myself the Renaissance and get inspired by the fashion houses visited in Europe. We as students are responsible for reading, and analyzing assigned material, after the related topics have been taught and explained.

Studying abroad is known to be one of the most beneficial experiences for a college student. Traveling abroad studying Fashion Marketing and Merchandising will allow me to meet friends from different backgrounds, gain cultural perspectives through an education in a new country, and create career opportunities through all that I learned and experienced on my journey.

I'm inviting all my supporters to come along on my journey with me. I will be blogging my experience along the way! Checkout my fashion blog www.aspiredbyanna. Also, will be sending all of my supporters a postcard during my trip! Any little support is truly appreciated! :)
