FALL 2016

HANNAH

Bonjour, je m’appelle Hannah! I’m a senior Marketing and Management double major with an Entrepreneurship minor and also a member of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College. This fall I will be traveling to Marseille, France to study at KEDGE Business School and I could not be more thrilled! I have never spent time outside of the United States, so this semester will bring many new experiences that I will share through Rebels Abroad. I’m looking forward to writing about my life in the south of France!

NATALIE

Hi! I’m Natalie, a junior majoring in International Studies with a minor in Japanese.  I will be studying abroad for a year in Tokyo for a year at Waseda University.  I studied abroad in Osaka, Japan last summer but only for a month so I’m super excited to be in Japan’s biggest city for a whole year.  I’m so excited to explore the city and discover all that it has to offer!

ANITA

My name is Anita, and I am a Senior at the University of Mississippi.  I am a Chinese Major with two minors in Korean and in Naval Science.  I am currently a Midshipman first class in the University of Mississippi NROTC, being that I have participated in the program since my arrival to Ole Miss on August 2013.  I chose Chinese as my major for the main reason that I want to be able to take in cultures and learn about places other than my home country.  Chinese happened to be a stepping stone in this process, being that I wanted to challenge myself and work hard on a language that is quickly becoming one of the most important in the world.  I will be participating in the Beijing Language and Culture University exchange program studying intensive Chinese in Beijing, China for Fall 2016 and upon my return to Ole Miss, I will graduate May 2017 and commission into the United States Navy.

I am extremely excited about this as I will finally be able to practice my french with actual French people and will be immersed in France’s amazing culture!! While abroad, I will also begin interviewing people for my thesis as a part of my International studies and French major. I have a long list of cities and countries to visit, and I cannot wait to share my experiences with all of you!

DANA

Growing up in the small town of West Point, Mississippi, I have always had a passion for wanting to see more, learn more, and do more. I desired to go places many would not dare to go, and to accomplish things some could only imagine achieving. It is aspirations such as these that pushed me toward language-learning.

As a Spanish major with a Korean minor at the University of Mississippi, I have had the opportunity to study abroad in Cádiz and Madrid, Spain. I have been on excursions to Morocco and Sevilla, and during the Fall of 2016, I plan to study about Korean language and culture at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea.

I believe that communication leads to understanding, and that understanding can lead to less conflict. That is why I intend to become a professor of Modern Languages, so that I can share my love for language-learning with others and help make the world a more tolerant and compassionate place.

LIZZY

Hello! My name is Elizabeth, and I am a senior in the Croft Institute for International Studies majoring in French. As a Croft major, I knew from the onset of the program that studying abroad was a key component of the language immersion experience.  Interested in global health policy and its relationship to French, I was drawn to a study abroad program in Switzerland. At The University of Fribourg in Fribourg, Switzerland, I will be taking courses in French, public health, and history.  The culture and beauty of the Swiss countryside is one facet of my program that I am excited to experience; with the mountain peaks towering above the town and Lake Lausanne only half an hour away, the magnificence of the scenery is breathtaking. Overall, though, I am most excited to meet other international and Swiss students and improve upon my knowledge and proficiency of the French language. Studying abroad in Fribourg is going to allow me to fulfill my dreams, while also opening many new doors of opportunities for the future! I’m excited to see what the semester will hold for my aspirations!
