University of Edinburgh, Scotland
Hello! My name is Jacob and I am excited to be studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh for my Spring 2018 semester! Currently, I am a student at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island on track to graduate as a Business Management Major and possible Marketing Minor in 2020. I am originally from the quaint capital city of Concord, New Hampshire where I have lived my entire life. After spreading my roots outside of the state I have always called home, I instantly fell in love with exploring new surroundings and building new connections. At the University of Edinburgh, I plan on continuing this by fulfilling my Roger Williams Core Concentration in International Studies and hope to learn much more about the world I live in. I am highly motivated by my passions, which include trying new things, personal growth, where I come from, and the people I meet along the way. I cannot wait to include Edinburgh, Scotland on list of homes away from home and I hope that my first attempt at blogging will be an exciting way for people to join me on my adventures. Be ready for my moments of panic and moments of excitement; my witty sense of humor and positive personality; and, of course, my overall experience of learning more about myself and the world around me.
