What is your favorite place you’ve visited in the world?
Each place has a special memory to my so its hard just say one. Of course I’m going to say Czech Republic because that's where I lived for 4 months. Other then Czech I say Turkey and Ireland. Turkey was just a totally different experience then any other European country. The culture itself was unique and diverse it made me appreciate all the world has to offer. Ireland, the Irish are people that know how to have a good time, they are extremely friendly, love to talk about sports, travel, history, and life; or those are the subjects I was able to talk about.

I know English, a little Spanish and Czech

What advice do you have for study abroad students?
GO ABROAD. This is a great time for you to go see a different culture and get school credit. You learn a lot about yourself and come back with heaps of interesting, funny, and memorable stories from abroad.
