Study Abroad Profile: Kristin Anderson

Kristin AndersonProgram: ISA Summer Spanish Culture and Language Program, Valparaiso, Chile
Location: Chile
Rank: junior
Major: human development and family science, early childhood education specialization; Spanish minor

“With Spanish being a passion of mine, I wanted to immerse myself in another culture and learn the language to (hopefully) become close to fluent. I chose South America because I wanted to volunteer in an orphanage, and my experience was unlike any other. I am so grateful that I was able to have the opportunity to learn from others, while also having others learn from me.

Kristin AndersonMy favorite memory of my trip is going to Pablo Neruda’s house in Isla Negra. The ocean was right in his back yard and the furniture and decorations were beautiful. It was a very eye-opening experience.”
