Traveler Bio

Hi! My name is Raven Ferguson, and I am from the small town of Monticello, Mississippi. I am 19 years old and in my second year of college. I love to spend time outdoors, whether it's hiking, kayaking or walking my dogs. It should come as no surprise that my major is biology! However, I am also interested in learning about the cultures and natural environments of places outside of Mississippi, where I have always lived.

Over the course of the next semester, I will be studying at the University of Exeter in southwest England.  Guess who else received her degree from Exeter? J. K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series! I love to read and am a little obsessed with Harry Potter, so I was amazed when I learned that fact. I can't wait to travel around England and Europe, learning more about different cultures. Plus, I get to share my adventures with all of you!  Studying abroad is a dream come true for me, and above all, I want to let you know that with dedication, hard work and perseverance, you can do this, too! 

Are you ready to go?
