Sami’s Story – Oxford 2017; NYC, São Paulo, Barcelona, and Cape Town 2019
Global Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies – Class of 2020

What she would like other students to know:
For me, studying with my feet on the ground — listening to people’s stories and using my own sense of perception — while also being supported with history and context has been the most fulfilling way to learn and grow.

A piece of advice to future study away students:
Check in with yourself and reflect on what you’ve seen and done.

What surprised her about studying away:
I was surprised to find that people you study away with will become a little community quicker than I thought.
