Hello! My name is Wardell Wilson. I am a 4th year majoring in public relations at the University of South Florida. Thanks to a few scholarships I have been fortunate to receive this year including the Mark and Kay Orr International Affairs Study Abroad Scholarship, I get to study abroad in France!
One of my goals in life is to travel the world and experience that “away from home” feeling. I think going to other countries will enrich my life in a few ways. I will see personal development from how I handle and react to a new culture. I also get the chance to expand my career opportunities as well.
The program I will be in during my trip overseas is Advertising in Paris and Cannes. Along with 15 other students, we will be channeling our way through a variety of well-known businesses that have thrived in the business industry. Attending a week long advertising festival swarmed by notable companies and people, then taking a tour of Paris and visiting successful advertising companies.
I chose this program because of the applicability of the program to my major and the location. The program will help expand my knowledge and understaning of the business world in France along with all of the attractions that Cannes and Paris have to offer. I also get chance to go to a beautiful country.
I want to make a name for myself and I hope to gain more tools from this program to help me do just that!
