Hello! My name is Jessica Alvarez. I am a sophomore at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, right outside of Boston, and am enrolled as a Global Studies major with minors in French and Creative Writing. Considering those interests, studying abroad was a no brainer for me. I have always wanted to live in Paris and also to really learn French, and so this opportunity through AIFS seemed like a good fit. I am fascinating by French culture and know this experience will enhance such. Blogging is a great way for me to keep track of my journey, but also to aid others in finding possible inspiration. A quick fun fact about me is that I'm really good at Just Dance.
