Background

What are you studying at Point Loma?
I'm a senior studying Managerial and Organizational Communication.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Lompoc, CA .

What countries have you visited?
In the past year while studying abroad in Rome, Italy, I also go to visit France, Germany, Portugal and Greece. As I child I traveled extensively through the United States (45 states) and Canada.

What is your favorite place you’ve visited in the world?
 Running a half-marathon in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal was pretty amazing. It was by far one of my best experiences and I met some pretty incredible people along the way. However, the overall culture and beautiful of island of Corfu, Greece is something I'll never forget! It's a tie!

What is the next place you would like to visit in the world?
Prague, Czech Republic. Dublin, Ireland. Berlin, Germany. Auckland, New Zealand. Ready to go!

If you could live in any other city in the world, what would it be and why?
I would live in Paris! Something about strolling along the streets of Paris with so much beauty and culture around you.

What languages do you speak/are learning?
English and learning Spanish.

What advice do you have for study abroad students?
Be open minded. Take the culture it for what it is, and adopt the ways of the people of that country--you will view the world in a completely different light. Try new foods, every single thing you can get your hands on! And last, don't get so caught up in taking pictures. Be present in the moment.
