    Study abroad is a rare opportunity that I wanted to seize because it suited me perfectly. I wanted to learn and gain experiences not only from a classroom and textbooks, but also from traveling, other cultures and the European education system. After all, it's a perfect opportunity to travel for a whole semester while you're in college!

    Over the course of many years spending my summers in nature, I developed a deep appreciation for nature. Today, this appreciation has evolved into a keen interest in cities, design, urban development, and business. Through RIT’s School of Individualized Study, I have been able to create a program which encompasses my interests, helping me to develop well-rounded critical thinking skills and an entrepreneurial spirit which will serve me throughout my life. Since high school, I have had an interest in architecture, and that interest has lead me to the study of real estate, and human spaces.

    I chose to go to Japan because of my long-standing interest in the language and culture.  Deciding to study abroad inspired me to declare a minor in Japanese language and participate a weekly event called "Japanese Conversation Table,” during which I became close friends with Japanese International students.

    Study abroad is a wonderful way to learn about the world from others' perspectives, and even more about yourself as a whole. It allows personal growth as well as your motivation and passion to grow as you experience life in another country.

    I wanted to study abroad because coming from a small, rural town in Western NY, I had no experience being in another country ... not even Canada! I wanted to go out and see the world during my time at RIT because college is the best time for me to do so, as I could work to fund study abroad and apply for financial aid.

    In addition to a rigorous course load as a Chemical Engineering and International and Global Studies double major, I am also on the cross country and indoor and outdoor track teams at RIT, along with being a member of Spanish Club and Engineers for a Sustainable World. I decided to study abroad because having taken Spanish since middle school, becoming fluent in the language has been one of my long term goals. I also wanted to be immersed in a different culture.
