How did your study abroad experience with CYA contribute to your personal, academics and professional development?
Briefly: CYA changed my life! I grew as a person and expanded my horizons. It was my first time traveling abroad, and exposed me to a different city and culture and immersed me in the ancient Greek history I had been craving. The experience I had there opened doors to me, and I've been traveling and living abroad as a result. I went to CYA with the goal of becoming an underwater archaeology photographer; CYA set me on the road to this, giving me a thorough background in classical art history and archaeology, and I was able to pursue my photography during school trips.
SO many!!! It is my favorite place in the world!
