If the thought of going abroad seems daunting- fear not! It was the highlight of my college career and was actually freeing and exhilarating. Like me, you will find that strength that exists within you as it emerges on its own. The knowledge you will gain is invaluable and gets you thinking outside the box. You will understand what I am talking about when you experience it yourself. Come by the Study Abroad office, get informed, and get ready to jet set!
About me, I come from an Italian-American family and spent my childhood going back and forth between Seattle and Rome. I graduated from Oregon State with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. I spent a semester abroad in Cadiz, Spain where I discovered my passion for international education. After graduating in 2013, I took a job teaching the Spanish curriculum in English at a public boarding school in Caceres, Spain. I spent another year teaching ESL at a private academy in Cadiz.
