From Foreign to Foreseeable Landscape

Here we are. It’s been a while since the program ended. The final blog post, the blog post to top it all. What an experience it’s been. From the crazy serotonin highs to sometimes the crippling defeat, it’s been an incredible experience. When I returned, my family and friends asked for stories, and I didn’t…

The Final Horizon

Another week and another blog post. However, this is a particular blog post. This is my second to last one. This is the last week of this trip. We’ve finally reached 100% completion. Somehow, it’s finished. From the first takedown in Berlin to a final one, I never thought the day would come. I’ve said…

Goodbye…

This semester was a once in a lifetime opportunity I will forever be grateful for. I studied business in an international environment, and took classes from professors all across the world while living in a completely new country with a foreign language.

Dear…

This past semester has been an enormous learning curve filled with new and different experiences that have helped me grow.

Au Revoir Marseille!

My experience has been a complete mix of total enjoyment and challenging adjustments along the way. I have never been faced with so much possibility, whilst also needing to use my time wisely to maximize my time abroad. This meant deciding which places I should travel to within my time in Europe, but also what…

Farewell Firenze!

I can say with confidence that I have seen so much growth in myself that is solely attributed to studying abroad.  In terms of personal growth, I have evolved in terms of how I can carry myself independently. Being your…
