Milena Santiago
Arizona State University

Paris, France (Identity & Inclusion Blogger)

My name is Milena and I am studying Fashion Business in Paris. Growing up I had a knack for entrepreneurship and I also loved being creative. As an undergraduate, I found that fashion fit this skill set perfectly. During my time in the City of Lights, I hope to spark inspiration for my work and make meaningful connections with the people I meet. My experiences in the fashion capital of the world should provide an advantageous stepping stone into my future career in the industry. Alongside fashion pursuits, I also love expressing my creativity through music.

Limerick, Ireland

I’m a double major in psychology and sociology with a healthy obsession with photography, reading, and writing. I’m studying abroad at the University of Limerick in Ireland this Spring from my home university McKendree in the USA. I’d like to think of myself as a warm welcoming person who’s always in search of her next adventure and project. I love finding the right angle to take a photo to change a person’s perspective.

My name is Zoë, and I am studying Tourism at CETT in Barcelona, Spain this semester. I fell in love with Barcelona in 2019 and knew I had to live there one day. I’m a Sagittarius, so I can’t sit still for too long, which is why studying abroad was the perfect opportunity for me. I am so excited to share my adventures and know that there will never be a boring day here in sunny Barcelona!
