Studying Abroad in Hanoi, Vietnam as a Nursing Student

There is a sort of magic that comes with waking up in a country that isn’t my own.

Around the World in 104 Days

Studying abroad was something I always wanted to do, but not something I felt I had to do.  That was true until one day, I was browsing through different study abroad options and came across something called Semester at Sea.  Continue reading “Around the World in 104 Days”

There’s Nothin’ Like A Dane

The #1 question I am asked is, “Why did you choose to study in Denmark?” It is a valid question. I could’ve gone to Australia or Spain, rather I chose to endure my first true Nordic winter and saw snow fall for the first time. Although Denmark may not be the sexiest country to study abroad in, I’ve fallen deeply in love with my small, cozy city of Aarhus and all the people I’ve met.

A Coffee in Haifa

I rushed up the stairs of the main building, hot coffee splashing against the sides of my large cup, and took a deep breath before walking into my first class. I was five minutes late because of the insanely long line for coffee that afternoon, but I knew I would need it before my three hour lecture. Upon my entry into class I found several students with their laptops out, coffee in hand, and eyes eager to get started – but I didn’t see a professor.  Continue reading “A Coffee in Haifa”
