Hi guys! I’m Maddie, and I’m a rising senior from Arcadia University. I’m working on my bachelor’s degree in International Studies and Spanish, and for study abroad, I’m doing two summer sessions in Granada. I’m so excited about the opportunity to strengthen my Spanish skills and to inform more cultural understanding for future employment. My first study abroad experience was to India through Arcadia’s preview program. When I got there, I caught the travel bug and have wanted to meet new people and experience new societies ever since! On this blog, I want to keep it as real with you as possible. I’m going to be writing about everything from culture shock to the LGBT scene. Also, stay tuned for pieces on food as well as what it’s like to take classes in a second language.
