Did the dust really settle?

Posted by on May 31, 2017

Wow what a ride! It seems like yesterday that I boarded my plane to head to Salamanca this past August to study abroad for what was supposedly one semester. That one semester turned into two and now I get ready to head to Dublin Ireland for the summer. I am still in complete shock that I am actually interning in Europe, but I can’t wait for this adventure. During my two weeks home, I haven’t really had much tine to think, butI  am ready to see what the summer holds. My professional clothes are organized, my paperwork is in one document to be printed, and have my guide and vegan meal confirmed!

My main purpose of writing this post is to introduce the blog. This blog will serve two purposes;

1. I was incredibly blessed to receive a Gilman Scholarship for my internship, and I will be documenting my experience for future applicants.

2. This blog will serve as a “how to” or “what I see” as a visually impaired intern abroad.

Well, it is my bedtime as I fly tomorrow night! Please follow my journey! I would love feedback!

    There is no stopping you, Holly. You are so amazing. Let’s send Newark Airport employees to Dublin to learn from the Irish.
