As most of you know, I am a student at Oral Roberts University, double-majoring in Graphic Design and French. I'm excited to see how God will combine these two passions once I step into my future career!
If you know me fairly well, you are aware of the extent of my love for the beautiful French language and my desire to solidify my knowledge of the language in a way that only living in that culture can do.
In light of this, it is my intention to spend a semester abroad studying at the University of Strasbourg in France during the fall of 2013. I believe that a semester abroad is indubitably valuable and vitally necessary to my mental, academic, social, and cultural growth as a young woman who will soon begin a career in an increasingly international work environment.
Studying in France will not only allow me to become fluent in a language that has captured my love, but will also open many doors to experiencing cultures different from my own. While I am there, I hope to visit many of the nearby countries, including Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, and England. I will get to experience life and peek into the thinking processes of people who are not American, which will be of incredible value to my future design career. I will also have the opportunity to visit countless museums and historical sites where I can learn firsthand about the culture, history, art, and life of the people who came before us and contributed to who we all are today.
