I am beginning my Senior year at UIW. My major is Communications specifically video production. I am minoring in photography. I have studied abroad twice before coming to Germany.Both times abroad I choose English speaking countries and this time I wanted to get out of my comfort zone. I decided to visit a country who spoke a different language.
Before arriving I was most excited about the excursions the school has planned for the students. From the Mercedes museum to historical tours through European cities, I was looking forward to seeing it all. Photography is one of my hobbies and after seeing these places the photos don’t do the cities justice. I love that there is so much to see and that I can find new ways and perspectives to photograph Germany and surrounding cities. Traveling to new countries has opened my mind. Now I want to learn new languages. I am only fluent in English and can understand a little bit of Spanish. After this summer abroad I hope I can learn a few phrases in a few new languages. Looking forward to this wonderful opportunity in Germany I’m hoping I not only gain many new friends but also an understanding of how different cultures are from my own and maybe even learn something new about myself as well.
