What made you choose this study abroad course?

It seemed like a unique course where I could learn some qualitative skills within research as right now, I have mostly done excel quantitative research.

What are your goals for your study abroad experience?

I want to create new friendships in a place I’ve never been and hopefully make enjoyable and unique friendships outside of the trip.

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

I most of all want to experience something unique and different from anything I’ve ever been comfortable with before. I want to push myself into taking more risk and I think this trip is the chance to start a lot of the ambitions I have in bringing myself into new environments.

In my free time I enjoy reading, photography, and video games. I really enjoy movies and video editing on youtube.
