A big congratulations goes out to our Abroad101 Student of the Week…Camille Bailey!! Camille is a sophomore at Old Dominion University studying communications, with a great interest in Japanese. Camille taught herself Japanese while she was in middle school and her fascination only grew when she began taking classes related to this culture at Old Dominion. In her free time she is involved with Japan Study Abroad (JASA), Communications Club, Monarch Lead, Monarch 2 Monarch, and the ODU Anime Club. She also spends her time doing Hakido (Korean Martial Arts), dancing, shooting and even volunteer work. Her future plans include working for the State Department of Foreign Languages and then upon receiving her BA joining the PeaceCorps. Through all of this she wants to study abroad for a year in Japan while staying with a host family, how great would that be!
The duration of this experience abroad would begin for Camille during the fall of 2016 and last the rest of the academic year. She will be studying at Kansai Gaidai University, where she will taking classes that contribute to her getting her Bachelor’s in Communications. Camille believes that this opportunity is an invaluable experience to help further her future career as a Diplomat for the state. The trip will include expenses such as tuition, room and board, books, airfare and local transportation. Although Camille is simply asking for help to obtain her student visa, health insurance through the university, and pay the study abroad fee. This is certainly an attainable task, so check out her Mission here and help her reach this goal!
