Traveler Bio

Mambo!  (Greetings!)

My name is Emily, I am 21 years old and I am currently studying in Tanzania, Africa. I live in Willowick, Ohio, but I go to Hollins University in Virginia where I study Biology and Chemistry. In the future, I want to go to vet school in order to become a zoological/conservation veterinarian. This means that I want to be a vet for wild animals like lions and wolves!

In Tanzania, I am studying at the School for Field Studies, where I am learning about Wildlife Ecology and Management (the study of wild animals and their relationships with humans). I am also learning one of the national languages, Swahili, and the culture of the local tribes.

I would not have been able to travel abroad without my scholarship from FEA (Fund for Education Abroad) and there are plenty of scholarships out there for students who wish to travel. If you can dream it, you can do it! 

I am a Fund for Education Abroad scholarship recipient. The mission of the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is to provide scholarships and ongoing support to students who are underrepresented among the U.S. study-abroad population. FEA aims to support students of color, first-generation college, and community college students with awards amounts of up to $10,000 for an academic year abroad.
