I am a 21-year-old student at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am currently in my third year of study. I am pursuing a major in Linguistics, and I am extremely passionate about my studies. I love to travel and explore, as well as go to concerts/listen to music, blog, hike, craft, and watch movies. This July, I will be visiting Dublin for the first time to take part in a 3-week program on the Irish language at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. Following that program, I will travel around Europe for a week with my friend.
