[A] noteworthy experience was visiting Cuba for MJF's one-week "Stories from Cuba" study abroad trip just this past June. It was incredible…I really wanted a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience.

Two summers ago, I went to Florence, Italy for a program led by professors Daniele Fioretti and Annie Blair called Writing, Media, and Culture. Those 6 weeks became the best experience of my life as I was forced into a completely new world.

Studying abroad has been another great experience, and I've been lucky to do it twice so far: first to Spain in spring of 2015, and then in Argentina in summer of 2016. Both of these trips, which were heavily immersed in speaking Spanish, have changed my life in so many different ways.
