Understanding various languages and cultures in our multi-cultural world.

Major: Romance Languages, Music minor 

Study Abroad Program: University of Spain, Córdoba,

I chose to go to Córdoba, Spain, in my junior year as the program gave me the opportunity to spend a whole year abroad independently.

This experience has been invaluable, not only for my fluency in Spanish, but also in contributing to my personal growth and broadening my perspective. It was incredibly rewarding learning how to live and carry out daily activities, make connections with people from different countries and discover a new city - all in a foreign language!

I am very grateful for the people I have met and places I have seen traveling in Spain and Italy. I value greatly having an understanding of various languages and cultures, Asian (I am from Singapore) and Western, especially living in our multi-cultural world today.
