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.
