Goodbye to my State of Origin, NSW

It’s been nearly two weeks since my GBI Sydney Sports Business Program ended, so I’ve had time to share my stories and pictures with friends and family, as well as reflect on the experience as a whole. The length of the program was perfect for me, being that I wanted a meaningful internship this summer,…

Cheers.

There’s no question that my time in London was the best seven weeks of my life. As I reflect on my trip back home in Philadelphia, I feel nothing but gratitude for everyone who made this trip possible.  Because London is one of the most, if not the most, diverse cities in the world, I…

The Path to a Better Asa

I’ve been back in the US for a week and a half now and while I have mixed feelings about returning to the northern hemisphere, I’m glad to be back. The seven weeks of academic programming was a perfect length of time to experience Australia and the extra week afterward, spent in the surrounds and…

再见, Moving to Shanghai

We’ve been in Shanghai for a little over a week now (I’m publishing this way past when I wrote it because VPN’s and things) and I’m still so excited to be here. Every time we go to the Bund and see the skyline of the financial district it hits me that we’re really in China…

Breakfree on George

In my time in Sydney, Australia I lived in Breakfree on George, a hotel in the middle of Sydney in Chinatown. In my small room, you walk in and the bathroom is immediately on your right, followed by a small kitchenette with a mini fridge, then two twin beds and a small couch and small…

Remembering Buenos Aires

Now that is has been two weeks since I’ve returned home from Buenos Aires I have had a lot of time to reflect on my experience. In the six weeks I spent there, I learned so many different things- from getting around using the public transportation to communicating in Spanish with my coworkers during my…

Growth While Abroad

Before I started my program, I was expecting the whole experience to go by smoothly, but the second I stepped on my flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, I was filled with anxiety. I was not worried about enjoying my program and growing as a person, but I was scared that I was not going…
