Our 53rd (WOW – We can’t believe it’s been a year!) Abroad101 Student of the Week award goes to Rose Compton from the University of Missouri – Columbia. Rose is a sophomore who is studying business, but concentrating on finance and banking. She also has a minor in her favorite subject, Spanish.
Growing up Rose has always been known for her adventurous spirit, so it’s no surprise that she’s been dreaming of studying abroad! This dream is quickly becoming a reality as Rose is heading to study abroad in Cusco, Peru this summer for an experience like no other! Not only will she be immersing herself in a new culture and learning a new language but she’s taking some time out for mission work. To prepare for the trip she has started a fundraising Mission to help cover the cost of airfare and living expenses while in Peru. This sounds like the perfect opportunity for Rose and we couldn’t be more excited for her. Check out Rose’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.
Stay tuned for our next Abroad101 Student of the Week!
