My name is Cheyenne, and I’m a fourth-year French student at USF Tampa. I’m about to depart for my Study Abroad Program: Language and Culture in Bordeaux! I am beyond excited for this trip. I’ve dreamed of studying in France since my freshman year, and these 3 weeks in Bordeaux, France will give me the tools I need to graduate in December 2017 with my BA in French Language and Literature. I plan to become a French teacher with this degree. The Mark and Kay Orr International Affairs Study Abroad Scholarship made this dream possible, and it still doesn’t feel real! I don’t think it will until I set foot in France.
I’m currently at the airport waiting to board my first of 3 flights. I’ll be traveling from Sarasota to Atlanta, Atlanta to Paris, and Paris to Bordeaux.
Here I come!
