Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Erin O’Connell and I am a rising junior at the University of Pittsburgh. I am pursuing a degree in Accounting and Supply Chain Management with a certificate in Business Analytics. This summer I am participating in the GBI London: International Accounting Issues program as well as an internship in the city.
I am from Yardley, PA, which is about 40 minutes north of Philadelphia, and I am really excited to get out of Pennsylvania for the summer! I have been to London once before, and I chose this program because I knew that I wanted to go back and live in such an exciting and diverse city. Outside of academics, I am a member of Pitt’s Cross Country team, so I am looking forward to exploring London on foot when I am running.
My biggest worry is that I won’t have enough time to experience all that London has to offer! I know that I am going to want to explore as much of the city as possible, which might be difficult to accomplish in a six week time period.
I cannot wait to share my adventures and experiences in London this summer with all of you!
