Thank you for checking out my study abroad blog! This is the site where I will be uploading pictures and reflections from my semester in Montevideo, Uruguay. To view my full online portfolio, please follow the link on the “About” dropdown menu.

As many of you already know, I am a third year student at the University of Oklahoma. I will graduate in May 2018 with my both my BA and MA in International Studies with a focus on Global Economics and Development. I am also completing minors in Spanish and Latin American Studies. I fell in love with both international affairs and social justice through competing in speech and debate during high school, and my background has taken me places I never could have imagined as a scared fifteen-year-old in heels and a suit. I have an amazing group of friends, a busy but outrageously fun calendar, and an appetite for adventure (and chocolate).

During the Spring 2016 semester, I will be studying abroad at the Universidad Católica del Uruguay in Montevideo, Uruguay. After graduation, my goal is to work for a nonprofit organization, preferably in the areas of health or education.

Thank you for joining me on this journey! ¡Vamonos!
