UK Study Expert Since: April 2018

UK Degree: MA Education, University of Roehampton

Hometown: New Orleans, LA

Current Location: Boston, MA

UK Favorite: I love a cozy pub, proper pint, Sunday roast, the exciting history, quintessentially English towns and the saying, “That’s really out of order!”

Life is too short to live in one place. Moving to England to study abroad was by far the best decision I have ever made for myself and changed my world for the better.
