Study Abroad Interns

Study Abroad Interns are Geneseo students who have previously studied abroad. These students hold drop-in peer advising hours and offer their time to assist current Geneseo students in selecting the right program, working through the application process, and learning specifics about their respective programs. 

Make a peer advising appointment through EAB Navigate. Instructions can be found here.

Why are you excited to be an intern?

Having studied abroad myself and getting to experience the incredible doors it can open, I am excited to have this opportunity to help guide students as they navigate their experiences abroad and readjust to being back. 

Fun Facts:

I used to be a competitive Team USA ice dancer and am an only-child. 

Why did I decide to study abroad?

I had always wanted to travel abroad and fully experience a culture different from my own, so when the opportunity to combine my student ambassadorship award with the FSD Uganda Fieldwork program, I knew that I had to go. There are so many aspects of culture that you cannot pick up just by reading about them, so getting out there and experiencing this cultural immersion first-hand was really important to me. 

What’s next on your travel bucket list?

After graduation, I plan to pursue professional experience abroad and graduate school. In the meantime, I would love to explore more of the African and Asian continents.
