During the fall quarter of my junior year, I studied at University College London on a direct exchange. I lived in a flat with six other women from UCL: three international and two from the UK. I was jointly enrolled in their Institute for Global Health and their Department of Anthropology. I'm not sure what I enjoyed the most: living in London and learning to "mind the gap," traveling around Europe with friends and family, or taking fascinating classes from amazing faculty! It was truly an experience of a lifetime.
To reflect on my experiences, I kept a travel blog complete with many pictures! The blog begins with my mom and I traveling to Italy to visit relatives, and ends during some of my last weeks in London.
I completed an extra project to earn Honors credit for my direct exchange program. It turned out to be incredibly reflective, as it synthesized not only my coursework and many of my experiences abroad, but also my personal and intellectual development over the past couple years.
