I never thought I’d want to leave the Midwest. I had always been a homebody, and the thought of even leaving Minnesota to go to Iowa was a huge deal (it’s really not, I know).

CyDog? BullClone? Sound confusing? Yeah it did to me too. I am a 3 + 3-year student at Iowa State and Drake University Law School. Essentially, I am finishing my undergrad while starting my first year of law school. So while I am no longer on ISU’s campus, and am full-time at Drake, I will be crossing the ISU stage this May (wooohoo!!!).  

So how's law school?!

Photo of Christopher on stepsOn February 13th, I left the states for what would be the best time of my life. After 20 hours of flying, I arrived in Sydney, Australia to study at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), my home for approximately five months. With my visa and passport in hand, I was out of the airport quickly and stepped outside in the beautiful city of Sydney.

As a minority student attending college is a financial struggle that has led me to lots of debt, so I figured I might as well get the most out of it by traveling/studying abroad. This is my first time studying abroad and I know it will be an adventure.
