Hi, I’m Marissa, and I’m an avid list maker. I like to plan my life out because I need to know my next move. However, I sometimes make impulse decisions that highly affect my life. What’s the most recent of these impulses, you may ask? Last semester, on a whim, I decided to enroll in a study abroad program.
What a whirlwind.
Today, I leave for a month-long journey with my school’s British Studies Program. I will be studying British journalism in London, learning about how those across the pond conduct media, and how that differs from the American standard. As a thorough journalist researches their story, I too will do so with a firsthand experience of British media – including trips to BBC, CNN and Parliament.
I am so incredibly excited for this journey, as I have never been out of the country before. I am looking forward to digitally documenting my adventures here and on Twitter.
I will also be traveling to Italy and France during my stay and working on my language skills, so stay tuned for recaps and travel updates.
Let me know your favorite must-see spots and recommended things to do!
