I'm a UC Berkeley student studying English and Spanish literature. I'm originally from Los Angeles so living in the bay area for the last two years has given me a feel for what it's like to live in both southern and northern California. Living in these two beautiful locations has made me sensible to fashion, music, and art, three things that I absolutely adore. For the 2012-2013 academic year I'm going to be studying at the Complutense University of Madrid where I will complete my bachelor's degree. My goal for living in Spain for a year is to perfect my Spanish, learn French, and simply become more internationally aware.
