My Travel Story

Hi everyone!

My name is Leah and I'm currently a second year microbiology major in California. I made the decision to study abroad next fall semester (September - December 2017) in Prague, and I need some help funding it! I had never really expected to study abroad during college because I was worried that I would fall behind in my academic schedule, and "taking a break" from constant biology and chemistry classes seemed like I was taking the easy way out. However, once I heard about the Prague program, I realized that studying abroad is anything but "taking a break." 

It may not seem like understanding Czech culture and taking Central European history classes would help out my microbiology degree, but studying something completely diffrent in another culture helps me achieve the well-roundedness and cultural awareness that I feel is missing from my experience at my home university. Instead of being stuck in the science world, I now have the incredible opportunity to learn about other parts of the world and how they work!

Thank you so much for any contributions!
