Our Abroad101 Student of The Week for this week is Emily Tipton from the University of California, San Diego. Emily is a junior who is majoring in linguistics, which is the study of languages. Currently Emily is a member of the College Residence Association and the Villagers in Programming Executive Board, where she serves as the Director of Internal Affairs. Also at UCSD she takes time for extracurricular activities as the photographer of The Guardian and a team member of the Recreational Fencing Club!
Upon graduation Emily wants to attend graduate school to earn a Masters of Science in speech-language pathology, which will be working towards a career as a speech pathologist. Emily wants to use her knowledge and skills to eventually work as a therapist for recovering stroke/vocal surgery patients. Way to go Emily!
Recently Emily has been accepted into the Global Seminar Summer Abroad program which will allow her to study abroad for the summer in Athens, Greece! While basking in the breathtaking sites of Greece and experiencing a new culture, she will be taking two history courses to finish her bachelor’s degree. Emily believes that an experience studying abroad will help her become a more well rounded individual and we couldn’t agree more! To help her reach this goal Emily has started a fundraising Mission to help pay for some of the expenses of the trip, which include plane tickets, personal expenses, textbooks and more. You can check out Emily’s 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.
