OliviaSergent webI am so incredibly lucky to be able to study in Japan right now. There is so much going on, so much excitement and newness that I feel a little spoiled even though it has nothing to do with me.

Taisse Torres is a junior majoring in psychology and Portuguese.

Last spring, I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Curitiba, Brazil, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only did I learn a new language but I was immersed in a new culture and did things I never imagined I would have the chance to do, along with making strong bonds with the people I met and spent time with.

Brazilian culture varies around the country, and I was lucky enough to be able to travel to different places and be part of different traditions. I was there to see the beauty of Carnival, the beginning of Festa Junina and even got to celebrate my birthday there. I managed to travel to Paranaguá, Foz do Iguaçu, Florianopolis, Morretes, Rio de Janeiro, Cascavel, Argentina and Paraguay. I went to beautiful beaches, saw the magnificence of Cristo Redentor, stood at the Garganta do Diablo at the Cataratas de Foz do Iguaçu and got an adrenaline rush at Beto Carrero World. This is without including all the adventures in Curitiba itself, which we knew inside and out by the end of our time there.
