From the beginning, I knew I wanted to study abroad in Europe. The plan fit well with my areas of interest at my home university: in the US, I’m majoring in history with a specialization in modern European history and in political science with a specialization in international relations.
I spent the night of January 1st on a flight from New York to London, ready to begin a months-long experience that I was both incredibly excited and incredibly nervous about.
King’s is an incredibly international university. For instance, my flatmates and I represent 9 countries between us with no repeats. Our kitchen is a beautiful amalgamation of smells and spices from all over the world, which is an experience I would have never had outside of London and outside of King’s.
This year has been the most challenging, fun, and growth-inducing of my life thus far. I can honestly say that this is the case because I was able to jump at each of the opportunities placed in front of me.
I study English Literature with an emphasis on early modern dramatists and I could not have found a better university to study my particular field.
