The purpose of the program is to expose people to a different way of learning, to engage students in a unique way, and to open eyes to the various opportunities located around the world. Each study abroad program is different from school to school – but they have the same end goal.  Continue reading “3 Reasons to Study Abroad”

Take Me Back to Paris

Several years ago, I was introduced to my favorite city and I immediately fell in love. Here’s proof! I was immersed in a completely different world of sounds, sights, and tastes. I didn’t ever want to leave. Honestly, I texted my parents and let them know that I planned to move to Paris.

Even on cloudy days, Paris still impresses me. Sure, I love the city for all the cliche reasons you can think of, but for other simpler reasons as well. I love listening to the rise and fall of the French language. I love seeing people sitting at outdoor cafes, enjoying each other’s company and a cup of coffee. I love how easy it is to get around the city. I love how fresh and amazing the food tastes. I love the way I feel when I’m in Paris. Although I’ve visited this amazing city three times, I’m always stating, take me back to Paris! Continue reading “Take Me Back to Paris”

An Open Letter To My Perfect Travel Partner{s}

When you travel with people, you’ll find some people are better at travelling with you than others.

It’s fun to travel in groups, and it’s fun to travel solo. For me, I find it best to travel with one-two people, as long as I’m travelling with the right person{s}. Travelling with another person is such a tricky business. It can literally make or break relationships of any kind. Just because we may be best friends, doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be my perfect travel partner. The perfect travel partner is found through trial and error, and when you finally get it right, it’s truly an amazing experience! Continue reading “An Open Letter To My Perfect Travel Partner{s}”

The Most Important Lesson I Learned While Travelling

“Life lessons will catch you at moments you would never expect. They don’t announce themselves, or come with a tag.”

I’m going to tell you a story…one that occurred in a very unlikely place that will be stuck with me forever.

My best friend and I were at the beach. I can’t remember if it was spring break, or if we met up in the summer. I can’t remember if it was Oak Island, Myrtle Beach, or some other beach on the east coast. What I do remember from that trip, is having a conversation with a shop owner that changed my life. My friend and I walked into the store with the intention of buying a couple of souvenirs for family and friends back home; what we left with was so much more.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Haitian Culture

Most people know Haiti as an island in the Caribbean, but how much of Haitian culture is known? Today, I’m sharing 10 facts on the culture as it pertains to my life!

As some of you already know, I was born in Haiti, but grew up in the United States. Even though I grew up in the U.S., I still was raised in a Haitian household, and that came with its own challenges. It might have been as simple as not understanding the popular game of football, or as serious as having to help parents translate everything. Often, I have to give out friendly reminders that my culture is a bit different than the standard ‘American’ lifestyle. As I’m sure some people are unfamiliar with Haitian culture, I’m sharing ten things you don’t know about it. Maybe you’ll know all of them already, or maybe you’ll learn something new 🙂 Continue reading “10 Things You Didn’t Know about Haitian Culture”
