Me—In front of the Capital of Toulouse, France
June 12, 2018

As I was close to entering my last semester as an undergraduate at Penn State University, I realized I was missing something; a study abroad experience.

This visit to France really impressed upon me the usefulness of knowing a second language, as well as the importance of making an effort to communicate with people in their native language.

I got to eat Nutella crepes underneath the Eiffel Tower and to learn about foreign agricultural trade from within the French U.S. embassy, and I wouldn’t trade these experiences for the world.

I never wanted to leave Paris. I came back to the US craving the buttery croissants and Nutella crepes, and wishing that I could eat duck confeit meal every day of my life.

Grand National de Dressage: Auvers, a dressage competition that included levels up to Grand Prix.  This competition was hosted on the third largest sand arena in France
February 19, 2013

When I registered for An Sc 499A, I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. After all, a course titled “Normandy France Equine Industry Studies” seemed pretty self-explanatory. But I never would have guessed that I could learn so much or that I would have so many incredible opportunities in one semester and a 10 day visit to France.

September 29, 2012

This past summer of 2012, I attended a study abroad trip with Dr. Marianne Fivek and Dr. Ann Swinker, and fifteen other students from Penn State. The trip was for an embedded course on French Equine Industries in Normandy. The objective of the trip was to learn about the horse business in France, which included, breeding, transportation, dressage, racing, showing, and selling.

The most difficult question to answer is what was my favorite part of the trip...

November 3, 2011

I am a Francophile. I love just about all things French: The food, the language, the culture, and mostly just the way of life. The “joie de vivre” if you will.
