My Experience Abroad:

While interning at the University of Minho, I worked closely with individuals in Minho Law's LL.M. in European and Transglobal Business Law program. These students came from around the world to earn their Master's, and working with them helped me appreciate that law functions according to not only economic and political schema, but also to sociocultural nuances.

Other Highlights:

  • Seeing a Portuguese play at the Teatro Circo de Braga

  • Wearing 6 layers so that my carry on would be light enough to pass the luggage size requirements

  • 2-week road trip across New Zealand

  • Attending Sydney's Mardi Gras festivities

  • Visiting the Great Barrier Reef in Cairns
