HOMETOWN Chelsea, Mass.

WHERE SHE’S STUDYING University of El Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina
WHY SHE CHOSE ARGENTINA “It seems like the perfect program for me: it is one semester, I get to perfect my Spanish and I get to travel to some of Argentina’s top tourist attractions.”
WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Living with a host family, taking all of my courses in Spanish, and being in a country led by a female president.”
WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “One of my favorite things to do when I am on campus and away from home is to journal and so I would like to continue this hobby of mine while abroad. I also want my blog to be a resource for fellow students who are thinking of studying abroad but are too scared or nervous to be away for long. I was ‘there’ too BUT I overcame my fears and decided to go ahead and do it. I hope my blog can provide encouragement to those who are thinking of applying.”
