¡Hola! Me llamo Jasmine. I'm a senior studying Political Science and English. During the spring semester of 2018, I studied abroad with ISA on the UT in Barcelona program, studying International Studies, Business, and Culture. Although my semester abroad was my first time in Europe, when I arrived in Barcelona, I fell in love with the city immediately. I studied international relations and politics in the unique, Catalan city at the Autonomous University of Barcelona's study abroad campuses. I lived in a homestay, and my host mom only spoke Spanish, which was perfect for me because one of my main motivations for selecting Spain was improving my Spanish skills. Another key motivation for selecting Spain was my ability to travel across Europe, which my scholarships and financial aid package allowed me to do– in total I made it to 13 cities! One of my favorite memories from the semester is when I traveled to Valencia, Spain with other ISA students, and got to prepare and eat Paella on a farm with a Valencian farmer. Study abroad is, undoubtedly, one of the best things I've done as a student!
