University of Iowa: Bachelor of International Studies – Business 

Joined CIMBA in 2014

In three words, the CIMBA experience is: wondrous, life-changing, and important

My other international experience includes: Growing up in North Dakota gave me the opportunity to travel to Manitoba, Canada when I was young. Additionally, I studied abroad in London, England when I was completing my bachelor’s degree and had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe. I spent time exploring England, Ireland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, and of course, Italy!

My favorite place in Italy is: Milan

My best piece of advice for future CIMBA students is: Treasure your time abroad and experience as much as you can while you are there. Don’t forget to write about your experiences as they happen!
