Hi! My name is Taylor Walker, and I'm the ambassador to affiliate programs for the 2016-2017 school year. I studied with the School for Field Studies in Cambodia last spring, and it was the best decision of my life. Studying with SFS seriously and significantly altered the trajectory of my academic career; my experiences in the jungles and government offices of Cambodia have led me to seek graduate study in conservation and natural resource management. When I'm not studying medicinal ethnobotany or the geography of southeast Asia, you can find me hiking the Greenway, crocheting on the porch of Main, or debating the planetary status of Pluto somewhere in Dana. I want to make your experience abroad as wonderful and dynamic as mine was - shoot me an email any time and let's talk.

Hi! My name is Catie Morel, I am a senior Art History and French double major, and I studied in Paris for both semesters of my Junior year. My time spent abroad was the best time of my life; I gained invaluable experiences and was provided with opportunities I wouldn't have otherwise received had I not gone abroad. During my fall semester I took incredible classes which allowed me to experience the city in quite a personal proximity, some classes being held directly in museums every week and some on the streets of Paris learning the history of how they came to be the way they are today. In my spring semester I interned at an art studio in Le Marais and worked as a nanny with a service called Babylangue, alongside classes which challenged my linguistic and art historical abilities. In addition to exciting classes and professional opportunities I was able to travel all over Europe throughout the year, expanding my experiences and my palette, and reaching cities such as Amsterdam, Vienna, Venice, Rome, Utrecht, and Berlin to name a few. My host family was the most positive aspect about the entire year; they made me feel welcomed and loved as I adjusted to this new life and they helped me improve my french and my mind over incredible dinners every night. After living and growing with them for both semesters, the relationship we developed continues to this day and I hope to get the opportunity to go back to Paris and visit them. My year in Paris was a whirlwind of excitement and adventure and I would not want to change one second of it.

Bryanne Global Ambassador Phot
Hello! My name is Bryanne Carter, and I'm a Creative Writing major. I studied abroad in London during the spring semester of my junior year. Those three months were the best of my life, and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to go when I did! I took four amazing classes over the course of the semester, and I learned a lot about art, Shakespeare, and European history. I had so many chances to travel places I had only dreamed of going before. Because London is so close to other countries in Europe, there is a huge opportunity to travel to other countries. I got to learn and grow as a person, and I got to experience so much history and so many different types of cultures in Europe. London is the kind of city that sparks people's interest in traveling, and if I could go back to London, I would in a heartbeat!
