My name is Natalia and I am in the undergraduate Social Work program. I have been honored and blessed to have received the Education Abroad scholarship.
My hope is that through this blog I will be able to share my feelings, excitement, and adventures with you all! During this trip my study abroad program will be visiting numerous places regarding social welfare in both Barcelona and Alicante, such as children’s hospitals, elderly homes, mental health centers, substance abuse, etc. These visit’s excite me immensely because I feel that I will have the opportunity to gain more first-hand knowledge about these populations with the hopes of narrowing down the population I wish to work with in my future practice.
The population I am most eager to visit currently is the elderly population.
I will be going into more depth in my blogs regarding my visits to each center and hope to share my knowledge and experience with you.
For now, I have to wake up early to make my journey from Madrid to Barcelona, so with that I wish you all a buenos noches!.
