Graduating Class: 2015
Originally from/nationality: USA
Years at WAB: 3

What have you been doing since you left WAB?
I am studying at American University in Washington DC. It has been a big adjustment from living abroad. I play intramural rugby. My courses are focused on international relations, gender studies and Spanish.

How has WAB influenced you and what you're doing/plan to do?
The international student numbers at American University was the deciding factor in attending. I was nervous about meeting people who weren't international, but it turned out that wasn't a problem. It made me open-minded, which made it easier to connect with all different types of people.

Do you have a tip for future WAB graduates?
Learn how to budget your money.

Go forward with an open mind.
