I’m saddened to be writing this blog post from the airplane as we are traveling back to the United States. This month has been so amazing and eye opening to me. As a business owner of an international makeup business, and having the opportunity to visit England and Ireland where women on my team are located in, it has have given me more insight of what life is like for these women along with the beauty trends over there.
From museums to tours of the BBC, Harry Potter World and more, along with shopping in stores that have 4-5 levels.. this past month has been the most exciting month of my life. As a college student and collegiate athlete, I never thought I’d have the opportunity to study abroad until my sophomore year when I saw all of our softball upper classmen explore the world during their fall semester or jan term study abroad courses.
After being abroad for the first time in other countries for a month, I truly believe that it is so important for everyone to make travel plans to another country at least once in their lifetime. Studying abroad has truly given me a hunger to travel more and venture out of my community into other communities to see how other’s live and be exposed to not only their culture but their history as well.
Until next time.
