About My Study Abroad Program

Major/Minor: Information Sciences & Strategic Communications
Program: University of Manchester Exchange
Location: Manchester, United Kingdom
Term: Spring 2020


Why did you choose to study abroad and how did you select your program?
I wanted to study abroad in England after visiting the country in high school and falling in love with it.


What did you learn about yourself?
I learned from studying abroad during COVID-19's development that I'm much more adaptable to change than I thought I was.


What is one of your favorite memories from your program?
I shared a two story flat with amazing flatmates and we each took turns cooking dinner on Sunday nights for the whole flat. These nights were some of my favorite memories where we all got to sit around the table together, I got to try other people's favorite foods and hear about their home countries as well.


What advice do you have for future study abroad students?
To try your best to live in the moment while you can!
