Mackenzie — AIFS Study Abroad in St. Petersburg, Russia
University of South Carolina
Hi, my name is Mackenzie Terry! I am a Junior at the University of South Carolina studying Finance, Russian, Political Science, and Business Analytics. I chose the AIFS Summer in St. Petersburg, Russia because I get to take three courses that were both applicable to my coursework at home and are on really interesting topics. I also loved the fact that we get to do so many excursions and attend a lot of different cultural sites and events while in Russia. I really felt like I was getting the most for my money with this program. A fun fact about me is that I was a gymnast for fourteen years! I’m super excited to be studying abroad this summer with AIFS and can’t wait to go!
