Hi everyone! My name is Meghana, and I will be studying abroad in Spain this summer. I am a recipient of the USF Federal Credit Union Passport Scholarship, for which I am very thankful for! I am a senior majoring in Biomedical Sciences, and minoring in Psychology, and Biomedical Physics. I am originally from India, and moved to the U.S when I was seven years old. I’ve moved around the U.S a lot but haven’t had much experience traveling abroad. In my freshman year, I did go to Costa Rica for a service trip, but It was only a one week trip.
I leave for Spain on Saturday, and I couldn’t be more excited. This is my first study abroad experience so I’m also a bit nervous but mostly just excited. Its a 6 week program so I am hoping to really be immersed in the culture and hopefully learn the language really well since I chose to take Spanish 1 and 2 while I’m there. One of the things I’m most excited for is the food, which I’ve heard is amazing in Spain. I am also hoping to have a chance to visit other countries in Europe as well. It might be a long trip from Spain, but I’d really like to go to Paris and maybe Italy as well.
