GBI Sydney – Katie

Hi guys!  My name is Katie and I’m a rising junior at the University of Pittsburgh.  I’m pursuing a double major in Human Resources Management and Marketing as well as a Certificate in Leadership and Ethics. I’m from Butler, PA which is about an hour north of Pittsburgh – in the middle of nowhere I might add.  When asked for fun facts about myself I always reply:

  1. It took me 19 years to try mac ‘n cheese.
  2. I have a cat that weighs nearly 30 pounds.
  3. If you play “Who Said” by Selena Gomez I will sing at the top of my lungs.

I have been counting down the days until I leave for Sydney since I was accepted to the program so I’m super excited to go.  Everyone asks me why I chose to go so far away for a study abroad experience, but the answer is always the same – I’m never going to get a chance to go to Australia ever again.  My main goal with this program is to expose myself to as many new things as possible and prove to myself that I can be on my own literally across the world.  I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me in Australia and I hope to come back with memories I’ll have for a lifetime! BozzoK01
