Hello family and friends!!! This may come as a suprise to a few of you, but.....I AM STUDYING ABROAD THIS SPRING IN ATHENS, GREECE! (as you can tell I'm pretty excited) This is amazing experience for me, and frankly a once in a life time opportunity. Not only are academics a top priority to me, but creating connections with new peers and working with different people are also important for my future success. I hope to gain more independence, meet new people, learn about different cultures, but most of all be engaged and motivated in my academics while studying abroad. As many know, traveling and studying abroad can be pretty spendy and if money grew on trees I would travel the world for my academics, but unfortunately thats not the case. I am ready to step out of my comfort zone and take on new experiences, and I would love to make my dream of going to Greece happen! If you could help or donate in any way I would appreciate it more then you would ever know! Thank you in advance!!
