Statement: "Learning another language has opened up a world of possibilities to me. I feel more connected to the international community and I have a stronger sense of my identity as an American. My abroad experiences have helped me become more independent, and I hope to have many more abroad experiences in the future to complete my cross-cultural education. I am planning to become certified to teach French at the high school level and may at some point consider a comparative literature degree."
