NAME Kelly Garcia ’15

HOMETOWN Chelsea, Mass.

AREAS OF STUDY Psychology major with women’s and gender studies concentration

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.”
