Wow. 

I can't believe that this amazing study abroad experience has come to an end. 

I wanted to end my video series with one of the most memorable trips that I have been on with IES Abroad. We travelled in 1 week to three different countries in Southern Europe, visiting 3 very important and influential cities: Rome, Madrid, and Lisbon. Each city suprised me in ways that I had not expected and confirmed that the EU's motto "United in diversity" stands true. Each country feautred a different language and a different culture despite their close proximity to one another and unique strengths and problems. This program is like no other study abroad program. On each of our excursions we not only get to see the beauty of each city, eat the local food, and see the main attractions similiar to all tourists.....IES Abroad EU takes it a step further. Allowing us to speak with local politicians, professors, economists, non-profit orginizations, and governmental agencies. On our southern trip, our concentration was on learning the political climate in each country, as well as how each country was dealing with the migration crisis in unique ways.

<p>My name is Destiny! I am a Junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill aka "The University of National Champions" lol. I grew up in a multicultural African-American / German family as well as being a Military Brat. I think these two aspects influenced who I am today and I'm very grateful that I grew up in such a diverse family, as well as getting the opportunity to live all across different parts of the country. In my free time I enjoy photography, graphic design, listening to music, horseback riding, and spending time with family and friends (and my two dogs). Professionally, I aspire to be a Lawyer, focusing on some branch of International Law.</p>
