Welcome to my blog. My name is Maria and I’m a junior at Elon University majoring in Journalism Strategic Communications and minoring in Peace and Conflict Studies and International and Global Studies. I was born and raised in Venezuela, my family is Colombian and I now live in D.C. Moving around has made me love to travel and has taught me the importance of being immersed in cultures different from my own.
I'm currently in Copenhagen studying abroad for the spring semester, and I’m excited to use this blog to record all my experiences good or bad. I’ve never tried blogging but I think it will be a therapeutic way of documenting the next four months. I'm in the Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism from a European Perspective core course. I'm also taking Danish, reporting and a human rights course. I’m looking forward to living in a completely different country and culture learning a language I never thought I would learn and immersing myself in the experience of a lifetime.
