Our abroad 101 winner this week is Alexandra Van Cleef, a junior at Texas Christian University. Alexandra is currently double majoring in strategic communications and Spanish, with a minor in business. She stays very active at TCU, being an event planner for her schools student government, highly involved in the community service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, and as a resident assistant! Her future goals include a career in International Affairs, starting off in Washington D.C. in the State Department, and then eventually moving abroad to work on policy between America and other countries.
Alexandra has recently been accepted to study abroad this spring at UPO in Seville, Spain. This trip will not only enhance her Spanish speaking skills but also will give her the opportunity to travel Europe and explore various cultures. While in Seville she will also be matched with a local Spaniard who wants to learn English, this way they can both improve their language skills. We think this educational trip is a great opportunity for Alexandra and can’t wait to see her adventures! You can check out Alexandra’s fundraising Mission 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.
