Adventure and Study Rolled into One
Giselle Gonzalez is always up for a challenge. An award-winning trampolinist and junior at McDaniel College, she's always looking for new adventures.
She was curious about how studying political science and Spanish in a different country might give her a broader sense of the world and better prepare her for professional life after college.
So how did she make the leap to study in Argentina?
"I have Coach Nicole to thank for motivating me to go abroad," says Giselle. "She made me realize that studying outside the U.S. was possible, important to my career and not as difficult as people may think. She pushed me to look into different programs offered through McDaniel. Without her, this would have never happened."
"Now that I am in Buenos Aires studying at Instituto de Desarrollo Economico y Social, my current Coach, Miss Courtney, stays in touch to make sure I have what I need even though I am thousands of miles away from home," she says.
"Study abroad is so much fun," she says. "I would highly recommend it to students interested in opening their eyes to the world. Thank you, CollegeTracks."
As part of her program, Giselle will spend her downtime traveling throughout the region. She's already been to Paraguay and looks forward to exploring Uruguay and Chile before her return to the U.S.
