Hi! I am currently sitting in the Los Angeles airport waiting to board my 16 hour flight to Melbourne, Australia where I will be attending orientation for three days. I am excited because the plane that I am flying on is the Airbus A380, which is the largest commercial airline, so it will be interesting to see the inside. I am really looking forward to meeting everyone at orientation and learning what the other international students are studying in Australia.
Personally, I was drawn to this location because of the fact that I am a marine biology major and I wanted to experience the completely different oceanic environment of Australia. I have talked to other students that have participated in this program and have thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience so that is what initially made me interested. I am also looking for every excuse possible to travel across the world so here I am!
