International Experience

I’ve had the privilege of travelling and living abroad during different seasons of my life. I travelled to Korea several times during my childhood, worked in France for a summer during college and then travelled throughout Europe. I also lived in Tunisia for ten months studying Arabic and worked with a non-profit organization in Morocco for two weeks. I have visited 20 countries and look forward to adding more to that list!

Favorite Aspect of CSU

My favorite aspect is the friendly community at CSU. I also love the location and CSU’s proximity to the mountains.
