Favorite part about study abroad? 

Having new, exciting, and challenging experiences every single day!

Something personalized about your K Plan that you are proud of.

I studied abroad for 9 months in China, including a 3-month long Intensive Language program that had a language pledge—I spoke only Chinese for 3 months.

If you could go anywhere, where and why?

I’d be willing to hop on a plane, train, or boat to pretty much anywhere, but I’d particularly love to visit Prague, Iceland, Dubai, and Morocco.
