My name is Abby, and I am a third year Political Science and Spanish double-major. I grew up in the east San Francisco Bay Area, but traveling outside of my hometown, first with family and then in my own Study Abroad experience, I quickly learned that travel was the best way to broaden my horizons and to strengthen both my relationship with myself and my sense of independence. I had to step outside of my comfort-zone, using an unfamiliar language and navigating a new city, which helped me become more confident and open-minded. Study Abroad has helped and changed me in numerous ways, making me a bolder, more adventurous person - someone who sees travel as the opportunity to continue to learn and grow.
