Summer 2021 Bloggers

Darcy Adreon
Identity & Inclusion Blogger
University of Kentucky
San Jose, Costa Rica

My name is Darcy, and I am a Biochemistry and Spanish student at the University of Kentucky. Some of my hobbies include hiking, practicing yoga, painting, and cooking. In Costa Rica, I will be studying medical Spanish to prepare myself for a career in military medicine. I am looking forward to meeting the people of San José, trying new foods, and learning to dance! Through my exploration of the culture and biodiversity in the city, I hope to deepen my understanding of my own identity, the universe, and my role within it.

Eva Kiparizoska
Identity & Inclusion Blogger
University of Mississippi
Granada, Spain

¡¡Hola!! My name is Eva Kiparizoska, and I am so excited to be a blogger for ISA! I am a rising junior at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi. I am a Biochemistry major with a Spanish minor on the Pre-Med track. Some of my hobbies include playing tennis, painting, and doing anything crafty, and my favorite, traveling!! I am studying Spanish in Granada this summer through ISA and I could not be more excited. What better way to learn the language and culture of so many people than by immersing yourself in their country! Having the opportunity to study abroad will allow me to flourish in my Spanish-speaking skills as well as meet new people, become more independent and well-rounded, and have the time of my life :)
