She is part of the Bryant University Chace Wellness Center Gym and has been on the Dean’s list while in school. Hannah has been divided on her future which is between being an entrepreneur that owns her own gym or working in law to help others around her. Regardless of the path she chooses (which both sound awesome!) she knows she wants to further her education!

To assist her with this quest on deciding her future, she is going to be studying abroad with API abroad!  Her journey consists of traveling to Barcelona, Spain where she will be exposed to an immense amount of culture and the opportunity to travel around Europe.  Hannah is fundraising to cover the costs of the flights, education fees, housing and even dining on the delicious food. But don’t worry, she is also working over the summer as well as taking a summer internship to make this goal a reality!  We have no doubt that this memorable experience will help Hannah realize her dreams!
