Hi everyone! My name is Gina Baca and I will be a junior at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey this upcoming year. I am an emergency management major and pursuing a biology minor with a concentration in law and justice. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to study abroad in Barcelona, Spain over the January term of 2017. Experiencing the cultural differences between Spain and the United States was very life changing, and ignited my desire to travel even more. I have developed friendships with the other students that have continued beyond our time in Spain. I truly felt that AIFS made my time abroad greater than I could have imagined, and helped to create one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I am excited to encourage other students to study abroad so that they too can make amazing memories and meet new people just like I did.
