This week, our Abroad101 Student of the Week award goes to Courtney Seyl! Courtney is a sophomore at the University of Puget Sound with a double major in theater and psychology. Her passion for theater runs deep and she stays very busy at school by directing and designing lighting for shows! Her favorite part of theater is behind the scenes and she hopes to pursue a future career in directing, lighting, or dramaturgy. She does love her psychology courses though, so is also considering going to graduate school for forensic psychology or social psychology.
To help see if theater is the right carer choice for her, Courtney is planning on heading to London, England to study theater and theater history. She will be attending the IES London Theater Studies Program where she is hoping to enhance her skills in the theatrical world. Even though her trip is not until next fall we had to admire her determination to get ahead, which only proves to how badly she wants this experience. Happy filming, Courtney!
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 #studyabroad fundraisers! We hope you can help us assist these students in reaching their goals to make their travel dreams a reality. To find out more about studying in London, like Courtney, visit the Abroad101 program page.
Stay tuned for our next Abroad101 Student of the Week!
