Lauren Anderson

University of the Pacific
Barcelona Summer - Language Intensive

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren Anderson and I am from the Sacramento, California area, but I am studying Engineering Management at University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. I am so excited to study abroad in Barcelona, Spain and learn all about the people, language, food, and other aspects of Spanish culture. One of my favorite things to do is learn about other cultures, so that is what my blog will reflect. Look forward to seeing and learning about Spanish culture!
