Statement: "Studying a language means engaging others in ways previously impossible. Studying French allowed me to go abroad to Rennes, which was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had precisely because while away in Rennes, I was able to question my goals back at home. I came back from Rennes with a new focus. I will stay connected to French next year when I go back to Rennes to serve as an English teaching assistant at the university."
