Ask me about...

  • Going abroad knowing nobody.

  • Living in an intercultural apartment.

  • Studying in a different language. 

  • Traveling on a budget.

My Experience Abroad:

I am a real estate concentration and urban studies minor. By living in the city of Barcelona, I was able to study the city's design and architecture. I learned about its interculturality and even took a class focused on Barcelona as an intercultural space. I was able to expand my Spanish language skills, which was originally a professional and academic goal of mine. Professionally, I aspire to work abroad and perhaps gain my masters degree in urban planning abroad, so studying for 4 months in Spain helped tremendously.

Other Highlights:

  • Traveled throughout Spain and Europe solo and in a group.

  • Met friends from all over countries of Europe, North America, and South America.

  • Expanded my Spanish skills.

  • Familiarized myself with living in Barcelona.

  • Tried new foods and experienced new cultural traditions.
