Cynthia Berumen

Major / Minor

I am pursuing a major in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science and Health Promotion.

Career Goals

My goal is to be a pediatric physical therapist or sports therapist.

What made you choose this study abroad course?

It was the idea of a holistic learning experience as it incorporates community and environmental factors that play key roles in exercise and health. Also, I  can work on my studies while being in a country I have always dreamed of visiting.

What are your goals for your study abroad experience?

I expect to immerse myself in the culture, discover a new appreciation for health and fitness, and plant my first foot into my career. I would like to work on my interpersonal skills, independence, and identity.

At the end of the program, what memory do you want to take with you?

I want the good, the bad, and the ugly. I want memories that last a lifetime and add substance to my life that I can later apply to my career and lifestyle.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I have been playing soccer for years now and see myself teaching my children in the future. Dance is also something I hold dearly to my heart and never see myself giving up.

What is a fun fact not many people know about you?

I can swim, but I can’t float.
