Hometown: Monterey, California
Position: Temporary Administrative Assistant
Countries visited: Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Sweden
Favorite place you’ve been and why: Copenhagen, Denmark. I had the opportunity to live and study abroad in Copenhagen for nearly 3 years and it will always be like a second home to me. I loved the Scandinavian culture, Danish design, and the amazing architecture of Copenhagen. It was a safe and welcoming city and I cherish the amazing memories I made there!
Ideal next trip destination and why: I’m really excited to travel to Japan and Australia! I’ve worked with a lot of Japanese exchange students and I’m very interested in their culture. And Australia has always been a dream destination for me as well!
Favorite BUNAC Program and why: The Intern in Britain program! What an amazing opportunity to gain professional work experience while living abroad and breaking out of your comfort zone!
What you love about BUNAC: I love that BUNAC serves as a supportive resource for people looking for opportunities abroad. When I applied for my student visa and moved to Denmark I didn’t really have anyone to ask for help and the process was confusing and difficult. I would have loved the peace of mind that BUNAC can provide young travelers while planning their adventures abroad!
Fill in the blanks:
I couldn’t live without: music and baseball.
I’m embarrassed that I love: French bulldogs aka ‘Frenchies’ so much but that I don’t actually have my own yet.
A fun fact about me is: I have over 60 first cousins!
