"Living in Pune and Jaipur was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences I have ever had. I was able to experience diversity in every form, traveling to beaches, tropical jungles, mountains, and the desert meeting people from all walks of life. Overcoming cultural differences, and language barriers to make connections with people was greatly enriching, and something I will carry with me for the rest of my life."

"Living in Salamanca was an enriching experience that undoubtedly influenced my personal and professional development. It allowed me to learn the culture and, often, the interesting difference between their version of Spanish and my Central American Spanish. I absolutely loved my experience and the people that I met there. I can't wait to have the opportunity to go back to such a beautiful country!"

London Centre Student Assistant
English (major)/ Creative Writing (minor)
"Being able to live in London was such an amazing experience. One thing I loved was getting the chance to meet and work with people from so many different backgrounds who have come to call London their home. Listening to their stories while telling them my own during momentous political times for both the UK and US was truly invaluable. I am beyond grateful for my experience."

"Living in Dakar, Senegal truly made an impact on my life that I will never forget. It was the most challenging thing I have ever taken on, but because of that it was also the most rewarding. I will never forget the openness, kindness, and generosity I was met with in Senegal, which created for me a second home, one I can’t wait to go back to."
