Hi everyone! My name is Emma Wynne and I’m a third year Sociology and Spanish double major. I studied abroad during fall quarter of 2017 in Mendoza, Argentina to study Spanish, and it was the most incredible experience I have had in college thus far!
During my time in Argentina, I had to navigate an entirely new culture, communicate in a language which is not my native language, step out of my shell when living with a host family, and build new relationships with many different people. I was able to get to know myself in an entirely new context, which gave me the confidence to pursue many experiences that have had a lasting effect on me. While I was in South America, I took full advantage of travelling and visited different parts of Argentina, Chile, and even Perú, all which even further expanded my global perspective. I learned that my education has the potential to extend far beyond what I can learn in the classroom. I know that I will carry the adventures I have had, the people I have met, and the places I have seen in my heart for a long time.
I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had to explore new parts of the world, and I look forward to helping other students find their own study abroad programs so they can seek their own adventures!
