Tzeniah Frazier
Messiah University

Hey y’all! I’m Tzeniah, just a small-city girl from Detroit, Michigan. I’m currently abroad in London, UK, for the semester at the University of Roehampton. I would love to share my experience, so join me as I navigate my time here as a dancer, psychology major, and student/tourist in a new country! We’re taking the world by storm.

Adeline Jay
University of Pittsburgh
Barcelona, Spain

Hello, world! I’m Adeline Jay, a junior at the University of Pittsburgh currently studying at the University of Barcelona. Back home, I major in business information systems and double minor in data analytics and Spanish, naturally. My lifelong passion for learning languages (spoken and programming), has led me to pursue an education abroad in Spain. Here in Barcelona, you can find me swimming in the ocean, cooking up a storm, and exploring the city on the metro. I am thrilled to share my experiences as I navigate this international journey.

Catherine Leitz
Eastern Michigan University
Maynooth, Ireland

Hi, I’m Catherine. I’m a senior music major (vocal performance) at Eastern Michigan University, currently studying abroad at Maynooth University. My lifelong interest in Irish traditional music led me to pursue studying abroad, and I want to continue on to grad school to study ethnomusicology. Some of my hobbies include hiking, reading, writing poetry, and connecting with others through music. I am excited to share my experiences with other students interested in studying abroad!

My name is Stella Olson and I’m from Denver, CO, studying in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), South Africa, at Nelson Mandela University! Back home, I am double majoring in ecology & biodiversity and communications with a minor in sustainability. In my free time, I love hanging out with my friends, cooking/baking, crocheting, and going to concerts.

Alex Zinn

I am originally from Denver and am now a senior at CU Boulder studying business! I’m an avid skier on the school team and always searching for the next adventure. I believe my optimistic energy and uplifting nature make me unique in my journey to continuously expand my mind and say yes to opportunity. I hope to strengthen my knowledge of Spanish while studying abroad and continue to use photography and design as an outlet to encapsulate moments of my grand experience as I perceive it.
