My name is Sebastian Almonte, and I am a first-generation college student. I grew up in Little Ferry, New Jersey, and am proudly Dominican and Salvadorian. My passion for photography started in 2020 during the beginning of the pandemic as a way to creatively escape reality. Along with photography, I have a passion for soccer, with my favorite team being Real Madrid, and martial arts, more specifically Muay Thai, which I began training a year ago. By studying abroad, I hope to broaden my horizons, network with new people, and immerse myself in Spanish culture, language, and traditions.
Hello! My name is Natalie Swinehart, and I am studying abroad in Paris this summer! I attend Washington University in St. Louis, where I study psychology on the pre-physical therapy track. I am also on the varsity track and field team. I look forward to meeting new people from my program and fully incorporating myself into the French culture. I am excited to also learn about the history of Paris, both inside the classroom and from discovering the city.
