AIFS Program: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Home University: Duquesne University
My name is Carolyn Conte, and I study journalism and international relations at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh. I knew I wanted to become fluent in Spanish, but also that I wanted to experience a non-European country. After narrowing my options to South America, I found that Argentina excited me the most, particularly because of the renowned majestic beauty of Iguazu Falls. I am sure I will also enjoy their culture’s Italian influence since I have Italian family, and I am thrilled to experience the plethora of other gifts, like tango, which Argentina holds. As for a fun fact about myself, I suppose that I love to watercolor.
