CAS '21 Sia-Linda Lebbie

SA: CASA Barcelona

Programs Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Penn Semester in Barcelona: Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad (CASA), Spain

Ask me about...

  • Recruiting while abroad and securing an internship 
  • Taking all of my classes in Spanish (feel free to ask me about the transition!)
  • Being Black in Barcelona (or Spain in general) because I am a Black West African-American student

My Experience Abroad:

My time abroad allowed me to complete two requirements for my Hispanic Studies minor, and when I got back to campus, I only took one more course and completed my minor. It also helped me increase my fluency skills in spoken Castellan Spanish.

Other Highlights:

  • Gaining fluency skills in spoken Spanish

  • Living abroad alone and getting to know a place by myself

  • Ability to travel to other European countries due to affordable airfare and proximity!
