Happy two week photoblog anniversary!
Today’s photo is a recap of 2016. Last year was filled with so many amazing adventures. I had an amazing semester at USC, whether it was surviving a 20 unit semester or spending time with my friends from my sorority, or killing it in my last (maybe?) water polo tournament. During that semester, I also learned that I received the opportunity of a lifetime in a Boren Scholarship to study Swahili in Tanzania. From June on, my life has been Swahili 24/7: a intensive language study program at the University of Florida and 5 months of studying in Tanzania. Whether in Tanzania or the US, I’ve made and strengthened some great friendships along the way. Tucked in there too, I had two awesome trips with my family: one to Lake Tahoe with my mom and one to Amsterdam with my dad, and one on my own through five different countries complete with learning how to dive! I also got to meet my favorite animal in their domain in person: a giraffe! Although I wished to be ringing in the new year with a female president (#imstillwithher), I am excited for 2017 and can’t wait to see what it has in store for me.
