From Grenoble Institute of Technology

Ask me about...

  • Being in a non-French school for the first time for an extended period of time

  • Being far from home for the first time

  • Being able to choose my classes and take a non-scientific class (I took photography)

My Experience at Penn:

Thanks to Penn, I was able to study biomechanics, which is something that isn't offered at my home university. When I came home, I got an internship in that field and so far it's amazing! I never would have been able to do it without my semester at Penn.

Other Highlights:

  • First is friends, definitely. I met some amazing people there and got so close to some other exchange students.

  • I was also able to travel a bit and discover New York, and I really wish I lived closer now! I got to develop my photography skills thanks to a class, and an awesome environment, and friends for models. I started gymnastics again and fell back in love with it.
