Tell us about yourself!
Hi Readers! My name is Charlotte and I am so excited to share my exchange experiences with you! Growing up and even to this day, I’m constantly changing my mind about what I want to be when I grow up. I mean, I know that I want to be the boss, I just don’t know what to be the boss of just yet. I’m hoping that my exchange with open my mind and spark an idea in my head that will lead to my full-time career. I’m an active individual who is not afraid to try new things so prepare for blog posts full of hiking scenery and food.

How did you choose your language of study?
I chose Spanish because I had previously studied French for several years and wanted to try something new!

Have you travelled before?
I have never travelled overseas before so I am fully prepared to have my mind completely blown when I hop off the plane in another continent!

What three things must you pack?
My mind automatically responds with my Mom, my bed and popcorn but I guess I should be somewhat realistic and adult-like. I must definitely take my GoPro, my Sprott ball cap and a Canadian flag.

What are you most looking forward to?
The list is endless! I’m looking forward to perfectly my Spanish, completely emerging myself with Colombian culture and hopefully travelling far south to see penguins (my favourite animal).
