I have always been interested in European studies as I was born in Germany and lived there for five years. After my sophomore year I had the opportunity to spend six weeks studying the EU in Brussels, visiting EU institutions and exploring Brussels and Luxembourg. It was an incredible learning experience and allowed me to get a better understanding of the inner-workings of the European Union. Classes like JSIS 301, Europe Today, have further enhanced my interest in studying Europe. Additionally, I represented France’s head of state during the 2016 Model EU Conference, which was a great way to meet students with a passion for learning about Europe and getting a chance to debate some of the most pressing issues today.
