Q + A with Annamarie
WHERE YOU ARE FROM IN THE USA? Haskell, New Jersey
WHERE YOU CURRENTLY ARE BASED? WHAT ARE YOU DOING THERE? Living life to the fullest while finishing my college degree through online classes and running my expat and travel blog.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU OVERSEAS? My fiancé received a job opportunity here which we jumped at the minute it was presented. I had always wanted to live abroad, so the choice whether to stay or go was an easy one.
HAVE YOU STUDIED ABROAD IN THE PAST? I have not studied abroad in the past.
ANY ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO FUTURE YOUNG AMERICANS LOOKING TO GO ABROAD? Let go of any fears or apprehensions you may have and go for it. You will come out stronger, have far greater experiences, and a much grander appreciation for what you have in your life. It is one of the best experiences I have had so far. While you are young is the best time to get out there and see the world. What better way than by experiencing a new culture while living abroad. FOLLOW ANNAMARIE ON HER BLOG AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA!
