Ask me about...

My Experience Abroad:

As a student majoring in Political Science, much of my time spent is spent studying current affairs and trends in both international and American politics. I found it fascinating to learn about the outcome of the 2016 election from a foreign perspective as well as hear a local viewpoint on decisions such as Brexit. 

Other Highlights:

  • Experiencing Cambridge's May Week complete with May Balls and garden parties

  • Making close friendships with Cambridge students

  • Traveling to other parts of Europe

  • Seeing Cambridge win in the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race in London
