Greetings from Trinity College and welcome to my blog!
I am originally from the West Coast – the Beaver State to be exact – and if you are unfamiliar with our State nickname . . . I am a native of the state of Oregon. My hometown is Cottage Grove, which is a small rural community about two hours south of Portland, along the I-5 corridor. Cottage Grove is known for its many covered bridges. In fact, it has earned the title of the “Covered Bridge Capital of the West”.
I recently graduated from Trinity, but am still on campus finishing up an internship at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (CCMC). I will talk more about my internship in an upcoming post.
During my junior year, I studied abroad at the University of Glasgow, in Scotland. It was a phenomenal experience which allowed me to not only study with other international students on a prestigious campus but allowed me easy access to explore several other countries during my stay; including; England, France, Ireland, Sweden, Spain and Portugal. I guess exploring other countries and cultures has been quite a passion of mine for a while and I hope to be abroad again soon. In fact, in the next few months, I will be pursuing a Human Rights internship before continuing my studies in the medical field. Recently, I have come across another Trinity alum who works for an NGO, in Nepal, and I hope to be working with him in the near future. One never knows what opportunities can arise through networking.
So, there is my introduction and I hope this gives you a bit of an overview of who I am. I will be blogging throughout the summer about my various experiences at Trinity and hope that you will send me a message if you have any particular questions.
