Global Diversity

During the summer of 2018, I had the pleasure of participating in Syracuse University’s six-week study abroad program in Madrid, Spain. While there, I lived with a host mother and fully immersed myself in the “madrileño” culture. I exclusively spoke Spanish not only in my homestay, but when interacting with others in the city and during class. On the weekends, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to other areas of Spain, like Palma de Majorca, Seville, Córdoba and Barcelona. Please enjoy a select collection of my photos from each of these incredible experiences.
