My Travel Story

Hi! My name is Allison Breisinger and I am a sophomore Marketing student at the University of Pittsburgh. I am aspiring to study abroad during the Spring 2018 semester. While I have been accepted into the Global Business Institute London Program, I have realized finances will be an issue. I am hoping to study abroad because I have lived in Pittsburgh my entire life and also decided to continue my education in the area and while I love Pitt, I feel like I may have limited my opportunities. I am concerned that I have not allowed myself to grow and become an independent individual, so throwing myself into a new country with no background will be the ultimate test. I have been working throughout my time at university to pay for my education and even though I have been saving, it looks like it may not be enough. So I am putting myself out there and asking for help which is one of the hardest things I have ever done.
