Traveling and Site Visits

One of the things, if not the thing, everyone most looks forward to when studying abroad is traveling. And trust me, you can get a lot of it while studying in London. London is one of the travel hubs of the world which means that you can get just about anywhere you choose from it…. Read more »

Reflection

Upon reflecting on my experiences in Singapore, I came to realize that I have grown, both personally and professionally. I came to Singapore with little to no idea what I wanted to do in the future. Sure, I had my economics classes where I learned about some theory about banking and how our financial system… Read more »

Beyond Singapore

It’s surreal how quickly time has flown by here in Singapore. As much as I love Singapore, though, my favorite part about my study abroad experience has been traveling to other countries in Southeast Asia.

I stopped at La Serena, a beautiful beach town in the fourth region of Chile. Exhausted from an overnight bus,… Read more »

Wanderlust

Hello dear readers, I am back with a new post, a new update! Believe me when I say that traveling is a luxury. It’s definitely something I did not think I would be capable of doing until after graduation, and only after working a couple of years at my job. As Hong Kong is centrally located in… Read more »

Oh hello, autumn.

by Annalie Jiang   Oh la la..November has completely snuck up on me. I have just realized that the semester is more than halfway over, and that it gets dark by 6pm now. How did the time fly by like this!? Often, the first impression I get from cities like Paris when I arrive that they… Read more »

When East meets West

On a flight to Turkey I sat beside a woman, her hair covered by cloth yet face exposed.  As she sat in my row, her friend passed by and the two grabbed hands and giggled in excitement. The seat free beside me she turned and spoke a language unheard by my ears, fluent and without… Read more »
