12 Things I’ve Learned After 12 Weeks Abroad 05/09/17

Well, it’s hard to believe that my CIMBA adventure is over. But after 9 countries, 25 cities, and 83 days, it’s only appropriate to reflect on the biggest takeaways from the best time of my life. 1.) Say “YES!” to the random place you never thought you would ever go to. Budapest definitely wasn’t on […]

Comparing Cultures Across Europe! 04/05/17

Since moving to Italy about 70 days ago, I have immersed myself into a totally new culture. And not one that’s somewhat similar to the United States. I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are similarities between the two but when looking at the cultures as a whole, they are very different. Living in Italy […]

The 5 Things I’m Doing to Prepare For My Semester Abroad 01/10/17

Ciao! For me, planning to study abroad has been very similar to applying to college for the very first time. Many factors go into choosing a program; location, cost, courses offered, and more.

I did not understand a word of what people were saying. I would sit in awe at how much I misunderstood. Now, my experiences are […]
