Brussels – the Capital of the EU

November 11, 2013

After a few busy weeks of travel and homework, I am finally getting back to blogging! To start off, I’ll blog about our last trip and end with some recent photos from Freiburg! Our last trip was based on the EU Institutions and we got to attend various academic meetings which were really awesome. In Brussels we visited the Council of the EU and the European Commission as a group, and I attended meetings at the Foundation for European Progressive Studies, Permanent Delegation of Turkey to the EU and Representation of the Flemish Government and the Permanent Representation of Belgium. Between the meetings, we enjoyed all the city of Brussels had to offer and had some great food. Not going to lie, we may have had Belgium waffles and fries for dinner several times!

I am a third-year student at Occidental College majoring in Diplomacy &amp; World Affairs with an emphasis on security. I am also a member of the women&rsquo;s varsity lacrosse team. I have been an active member with the Office of Student Life, participating and helping coordinate their Emerging Leaders Program. In my free time I enjoy going to Disneyland, finding a new TV show addiction on Netflix, and spending time with my friends. I love travelling and discovering new cultures. I am looking forward to starting this new journey, learning German and having the chance to photograph some of Europe&rsquo;s most historical and important cities!</span></p>
