Most memorable views during your travels. 
My most memorable view was looking over the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. It was such a breathtaking experience, the natural beauty of Ireland really is like none other.

What makes you happy?
Traveling, hiking, camping, and skiing makes me happy! I love being out in nature.

What gets me out of bed in the morning? 
Drinking a chai latte, it's my favorite drink and always gets my day started on the right foot.

Best advice to a future study abroad student: 
Take in every little experience, the more you immerse yourself the more you'll get out of your program.

The next thing on your bucket list?
I would love to go to Croatia, specifically Split or Zagreb!
