I am a small island girl from the south side of Saint Elizabeth Jamaica, who had a dream to go to college in the United States. Upon accomplishing that dream, I decided that I wanted to study abroad to enhance my skills in my major. I hope to fully emerge myself into the culture in Spain, while using the language that I have acquired from years of studying it. I am excited about creating and building relationships with new people and being a part of a new culture. Based on statistics, people of my demographic do not normally study abroad due to the lack of opportunities that they are faced with, therefore, I am incredibly honored that I have this opportunity. With this opportunity, I can show people in my community and other minority students that it is possible to study abroad, and gain a life long experience.
