Since I was a young child, I have been a traveler. In fact, travel is my number one hobby, and it is the reason that I chose to study photojournalism and Spanish.

At age 2 I took my first international flight to Costa Rica, and 13 years later I returned again. Between these years I visited Alaska, Hawaii, the Western states, the East Coast, British Columbia, Mexico, France, Italy, England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

As I began to study Spanish and grow a passion for the language, I traveled to more Hispanic countries including Panama, Spain and Peru.

This past summer I went on a study abroad trip to Berlin for two weeks. However, I extended the trip so that I could visit Switzerland, France, Spain, Belgium, Holland and Austria before and after the program was over.

My future travel plans include visiting New York City in October. I am planning on enrolling in a study abroad program either in the spring or summer in order to finish my Spanish minor. Chile, Mexico and Spain are in the running.
