Study abroad location and semester:
IES Salamanca, Spain, Spring 2012
International Affairs and Spanish Linguistics Double Major
New York City
Favorite abroad experience:
Impromtu trip to Milan and Genoa in Italy, where I got to look at the world's finest fashions and eat the world's greatest food.
Why I joined GLGC:
My experience abroad changed my outlook on the world and helped me understand myself in a deeper way. I want to make sure that I do not lose sight of what my study abroad experience gave me. The GLGC helps me apply what I learned abroad to what I am doing here at Gettysburg College; it inspires me to be an active member of the global community; it allows me to guide others who may be thinking about studying abroad in the future.
Plans after graduation:
I do not have a specific career goal just yet. I know that I would like to join the Peace Corps or other international volunteer service upon graduation.
