The recipient of our Abroad101 Student of the Week award is Dakota Lum, a freshman at Northern Arizona University. Dakota is an electronic media and film major with a minor in Spanish. She loves rugby and even started her high school’s girls rugby team her senior year. On top of being athletic, Dakota is a hard worker when it comes to academics and has multiple favorite subjects. Just this semester she is balancing 19 units, work, playing rugby, and launching a photography business with her mom.
Dakota has aspirations after college to land a job within the media industry. To help her reach this goal she has has applied for a journalism internship in Florence, Italy through World Endeavors. This trip abroad will not only allow her to gain invaluable experience in her field of study but she will also be learning Italian!
