Cultural competence all around

This past weekend, I’ve come back from adventuring around more of Ireland. Although I’ve been here for nearly two months, the country’s landscape and even Dublin city is still just as amazing as on the first day. One thing I can’t get over is the greenery. There is an insane amount of greenery basically everywhere…

Czech’d that box!

To say this summer was an amazing experience would be an understatement. I began this journey a little wary about how I would feel about such a big lifestyle change. There were still so many moving parts at the time; I didn’t know what people I would meet, what cultural differences there were, what my…

Final analysis

Wow! What an amazing experience! The city of Madrid, Cats Hostels, my host family, and all my new friends! Reflecting on this experience will take me back and visit so many fond memories. The primary focus of this paper will be on the internship; I will include everything that I deem necessary for a person…

Final Reflection Blog on Dublin Experience

The Best Summer of My Life

I could not have been more grateful and fortunate for such a wonderful experience. Never in my life did I fathom I would be studying abroad, no less in Ireland. I can still remember being in the airplane heading off to Dublin and fully realizing that I truly was going to Ireland to start work…

Forever Missing Dublin

I’ve now been back home and settled from Dublin for one week. Being home with no job, I’ve grown more bored than I realized I could. When I’m taking classes and am in the dead of the semester, I’d give anything to have absolutely no responsibilities, but now I’m realizing I oddly prefer to be…
