“My perspective has broadened a lot since going abroad; I am more cognizant of how others might perceive my words. I am more bilingual, globally experienced, and flexible . . . My advice is to try everything at least once. Don’t be afraid to push yourself: it’s so worth it.”

“My favorite course was Branding and Cultural Icons: The Case of Barcelona. I learned about branding and PR. Additionally, I found my passion via my individual project: website design. I tapped into my creative side and had more control of what I wanted vs. strict directions at UW.”
