My Background
During my bachelor’s study at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln I became interested in working with college students and began pursuing a career in Student Affairs, sparked by my admiration for my academic adviser and her work. I served as an intern in the English advising office and an Arts and Sciences student ambassador, which provided me with an introduction to the field. Throughout graduate school I held an assistantship in the Education Abroad Office, which helped cultivate my passion for International Education and study abroad. In the spring of 2015 I completed my Master's in Educational Administration and Student Affairs, and began working full-time for the Education Abroad Office!
My Study/Work Abroad
During the summer of 2011 I pursued my long-awaited dream to study abroad which took me to Gothenburg, Sweden on a UNL faculty-led program. I studied the advent of hip-hop, social justice movements, and race relations in Sweden, comparing these aspects of Swedish culture to American culture. I also took excursions to other areas of Scandinavia, and to the UK. As a graduate student, I again had the opportunity to study abroad in the summer of 2014, this time in India. While in India I learned about the global issue of human trafficking, and spent time working with women and children affected by this issue. I traveled across north and central India, visiting 5 different cities and many amazing historical and cultural sites along the way!
My Ideal Next Travel Destination
My next travel destination will most likely be Costa Rica, or another Central/South American country. I have been wanting to learn the Spanish language for quite some time now, and hope to one day be able to master the language enough to utilize it during my future travels to this region.
