Chicago, Illinois, United States
I am a junior Marketing major at the University of Dayton. I am originally from Chicago, IL, a city I have always called home. Traveling was always something that seemed so magical; it allowed you to experience a different way of life. Last Spring I got the amazing opportunity to travel and spend a semester across the pond in the beautiful country of Ireland, a place I would now refer to as my second home. Throughout my 4 months abroad I was able to travel across Ireland, from coast to coast, as well as throughout seven countries in Europe. Not only was I fortunate enough to experience many different cultures, but I learned new things about myself everyday.
This background picture is from Belfast, Norther Ireland, United Kingdom. Northern Island is part of the UK, and the day I took this picture was the best weather we had had in the three and a half months I was in Ireland. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence that it hadn't rained or if it was because I had technically "left" Ireland!
