Hi everyone! I am studying abroad at Universidad de Murcia in Spain this spring semester, from January 7th to the end of June. I hope above all to become fluent to a near-native level in Spanish during my semester away, but to do so I need your help. More

Hi everyone! I am studying abroad at Universidad de Murcia in Murcia, Spain this spring semester. I will be taking courses in Spanish with Spanish students, as well as involving myself in university clubs and the local community. I hope through this immersion to reach near-native level fluency in Spanish during the semester. 

My career goals have been pushing towards Spanish as of late. Last semester, I officially changed my major. I have been getting my toe in the door with some translation work, and have interest in continuing that skill. I have also held a volunteer position teaching ESL through a local nonprofit for the past few semesters, and am currently serving as a program director for one of our locations. I am excited to see where my Spanish can take me in the nonprofit sector, and am interested in possibly pursuing a career in adult education and/or ESL. In all of these endeavors, the language fluency I will hopefully achieve while at Murcia will be invaluable.

Although I have federal student loans and a tuition plan, funds are running short. This is due to a number of things, including having to pay for my recent surgery out of pocket. I hope to not have to take out any private loans to fund my studies, and I don't want my parents to be forced to do so either. The majority of the semester's expenses are already covered, but I still need money for things like flights, insurance, a housing deposit, books, and (if possible) inter-european travel while I have that opportunity.
