Coming January 2016, I will be launching my personal travel blog as an extension of my professional portfolio. During the Spring 2016 semester of my junior year, I will be studying at the University of Sussex in Brighton, United Kingdom under their School for Music, Film and Media Studies. Originally admitted as a student in their School of English Literature, I decided to take full advantage of my opportunity overseas and study film, new media, communications and journalism. While doing so, I will be using this blog to communicate with my readers about my experience abroad. This blog will serve as a coming-of-age narrative that serves as an opportunity for my readers to watch me grow as a 20-year-old Black woman from America studying in a foreign country for an extensive period of time. Through my raw, unfiltered voice, I will talk about my experiences with classes, dating, food and much more.
