What was the best part of your experience?

I loved being able to see such diverse theatre --in terms of content, production, style, and more. I also enjoyed being able to experience this theatre while immersing myself in the culture of the country through trips, historical scenes, and common interactions. Traveling with diverse and incredible fellow students allowed me to interpret the shows in different ways as I heard others' perspectives and inputs.

Moving forward, I feel I have a better way of connecting with people from different communities because I've been able to see and hear the stories on stage and the way it impacts the characters

How did this experience impact you academically?

This experience allowed me to explore creative writing beyond the story and essay. I got to try out the medium of theatre after being given valuable seminars on play writing and a plethora of great examples of wonderful acting and writing.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

The London/Dublin Study Tour impacted my career goals by showing me the multiple ways diversity can be showcased and displayed. Moving forward, I feel I have a better way of connecting with people from different communities because I've been able to see and hear the stories on stage and the way it impacts the characters. This ability to connect with be highly useful in my field, and I'm grateful for the opportunity.

How has the Paterno Fellows Program had an impact on this experience?

The Paterno Fellows Program has influenced me to continue to push my boundaries and pounce on valuable opportunities. Without the support from the Program and the encouragement I got from fellow Paterno Fellows who are alumni of the London Study Tour, I never would have considering going on the trip. I'm so glad I went and so thankful to the Paterno Fellows Program.
