¡Hola! I’m Rachel, a sophomore at the University of Mississippi from Chesapeake, VA. Currently, I’m studying at la Universidad de Deusto in Bilbao, Spain for the semester. Back at Ole Miss, I am a double-major in Journalism and Spanish and am a proud member of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, the Ole Miss Forensics and Debate Team, and Phi Mu sorority. Anyone who has shared a single conversation with me knows that I’m madly in love with all things Spanish. Now, my dreams have become a reality, and I’m able to first-handly experience the culture, country, and language that I love so much through studying abroad. In addition, I’m looking forward to all my upcoming European adventures and becoming completely immersed as a new Spaniard. Here on my blog, you’ll find posts about all my new experiences, travels, and discoveries from my European adventure.
