This week’s Abroad101 Student of the Week comes to us from Grand Valley State University. Katie Bounds is a student athlete who is majoring in criminal justice with a minor in sociology. She even has an emphasis in Spanish! Katie enjoys working hard and has future career aspirations to done day join the secret service or homeland security.
Being adventurous and a go getter by nature, it’s no surprise that Katie has been dreaming of studying abroad and learning about new cultures! And it looks like that wish is coming true, as she has recently been accepted into a program in the Netherlands to study geography and planning. Katie is very grateful to have this opportunity and plans to use this experience to jump outside of her comfort zone! We think traveling and living in the Netherlands will do just that, don’t you? Learn more about Katie and her Mission to study abroad here!
The Abroad101 Student of the Week initiative awards a student who created a Mission for a study abroad program on GoEnnounce with a donation to their fundraiser. Learn more about this partnership from Abroad101 CEO Mark Shay and GoEnnounce co-founder Melissa Davis here.
We’re making weekly donations to study abroad fundraisers! We hope you can help us assist these students in reaching their goals and make their travel dreams a reality. Visit here to help with this mission. To find out more about studying in the Netherlands, like Katie, visit the Abroad101 program page.
Stay tuned for our next Abroad101 Student of the Week!
