Traveler Bio

Hello from across the Atlantic Ocean! My name is Nicolas Stevens, and I'm a 24-year-old student from San Francisco State University. I’m so excited to be able to share my experiences in Reims, France with you over the coming weeks and months!

My family moved to the United States from Mexico when I was eight years old, so I've been exposed to different cultures from an early age. One thing I realized is that when you encounter something new, it is never easy. But if you’re able to look past the temporary challenge of adapting to new situations, then the reward can be immense!

I’ve always been interested in what people think and why they think what they think. Being able to see the world through other peoples' eyes can teach you things about your life, too. I chose to study in a foreign country to learn from someone different. I hope to be able to share with you what it’s like to grow in unexpected ways and how to value that which is foreign. Are you ready to dive into France’s food, music, art, culture and much more? Let's go!
