Why did you choose to study abroad?
I wanted to be able to immerse myself in the language I'm studying in a cultural context and establish new connections abroad. Also, I wanted to grow myself professionally in an international setting and wanted to do an international internship.

Why did you choose your study abroad city?
To be completely honest, because I'm a total nerd. Star Wars Attack of the Clones was filmed in the Plaza de Seville and Game of Thrones was filmed throughout southern Spain including the Alcazar de Seville. I couldn't resist.

What are you most looking forward to during your study abroad experience?
All of the wonderful new food I will get to try! On a more serious note, I look forward to increasing my sense of independence and confidence as I navigate and learn to assimilate in to a foreign country.

Fun Fact:
Due to my military background and diverse family background, I've been able to travel to 10 different countries throughout my lifetime.
