Hey class! I am Erica, Julia´s sister and am currently studying in Madrid, Spain. I was born and basically raised in New York but graduated high school in Arizona and attend college at Arizona State. I am in my third year there studying Business Communications, International Business, and Spanish. I have been studying Spanish for a long time but being immersed straight into a Spanish speaking city is a completely different experience. I think I expected there to be more English speaking people, but it is a rare occasion to find one. So far, I am learning a lot and can´t wait to continue to learn and grow here. I am having a blast and cannot wait to tell you all about it.
I am involved in a lot of things at ASU like my sorority, Delta Gamma. I have met some of my best friends in the world by becoming involved in such an outstanding organization. I am also involved in a few business organizations such as Beta Gamma Sigma and Collegiate Deca. College is an amazing experience and I cannot believe that it is almost over. While in Europe I plan to do everything I can to make sure the experience is amazing. I already have plans to travel to London next week and Cadiz in another couple of weeks. I plan to travel all over and see what Europe has to offer. I look forward to working with you and hope that I can teach you a thing or two about a different lifestyle.
