I have been fortunate enough to have a supportive family and resourceful university in Houston, TX that have helped me come to Strasbourg-France to study abroad for one semester. From here I am going to Barcelona-Spain to do a summer internship. This semester has definitely challenged me in terms of language, socially, and academically. I have had to adjust to different ways of scheduling and more bureaucracy, but I have loved learning about the French way of doing things. Life is beautiful in this country. I want to thank the University of St. Thomas' Study Abroad Department and Administration in general for giving me the opportunity of living in Europe for 6 months.
