My Travel Story

  • Study/Degree Abroad
  • Educational/Research Trip
My name is Rachel Balko and I am a communications major at West Chester University. This summer I have the oppurtunity to study abroad in Ireland and learn about the differences in media between Ireland and the US. It is a very beneficial experience for someone my age. I will be learning about a culture very different than my own. My education will be much more well-rounded as well. I am very passionate about this project because I love my major and being able to learn about communications in a different country is something I am very interested in. I chose this specific destination because it is somewhere I have always wanted to visit. I am Irish myself so I would love to see where my ancestors have come from. I hope to travel abroad many times in my future. Unfortunately the costs are very difficult for me to fund at this time because I am a full time student.
