I am Jamie form Chicago, Illinois; I currently attended the University of Minnesota Twin cities campus. I am enrolled in the Carlson School of Management with a potential major in International Business and Finance. I will be taking French in the spring because I am interested in studying abroad in France. I find the French culture to be fascinating and I would like to learn more about it. I have found living in Minnesota to be a nice experience. The people are friendly and I hope that my experience in France will be the same. The thought of traveling makes me so excited. I love to visit new places allowing myself to become emerged in the culture. The opportunity to study abroad is one that I am happy to partake. Everyone should have the chance to visit a new place and live a life of adventure, well at least in my opinion.
