Payton in Nagoya

I grew up in a small farm town but was bitten by the travel-bug shortly after leaving for undergrad. I have a sweet tooth the size of Texas, and can often be found searching for the best treats life has to offer.

Term: Spring 2018
Study Abroad Location

All about Payton

Where I'm From: 
Toulon, Illinois
My Home University: 
Illinois Wesleyan University
My Major: 
English

Favorite thing about going abroad?

I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to fully immerse myself in Japanese language and culture, whether it's in the classroom, or through traveling, eating, making new friends, or living with a host family. I've been to Japan before, but during those trips, I was surrounded by a lot of English speakers, but this time I'll get the chance to grow my language skills and get to experience the culture with that new perspective.
