Bio

Hello! My name is Lily, and I’m a fourth year International Relations major from Sydney, Australia.

Growing up, I was very lucky to be exposed to a variety of different cultures and perspectives. I was raised by parents originally from California, and I spent parts of my childhood living in Japan and Singapore. We also traveled a fair bit, and the opportunity to learn about other countries both by visiting and talking about them at the dinner table has fostered my life long desire to learn more about the world!

I’m very excited to be working at Study Abroad, because I believe that travelling and immersing yourself in new environments is a fantastic way to become educated on global issues, and to challenge yourself as a person.

In Fall of 2017 I was able to do just that when I took part in the UCEAP program “Rome Through the Ages”! I had an amazing time, and loved making friends from different UCs and taking classes on topics that I probably wouldn’t have studied in Davis.

I can’t wait to work at Study Abroad and to help other students make their own study abroad dreams a reality!
