I’m terrified of About Me sections because there is far too much pressure to sum my life up and prove to you that I’m likable, witty, intelligent, and worthy of your interest on one page. It’s like internet dating. I mean, I’ve never internet dated, but I’m guessing.
The basics are: I’m an American 20-something living just outside of London.
I moved to London in 2012 on a CAPA study abroad program, and ending up loving the UK so much that I found every way (and visa) I could to come back. While an undergrad, I also did the API London and AIFS London programs, studying at UCL and Richmond, The American International University. Since then, I have also done BUNAC‘s London Internship program and direct enrolled at the University of Westminster for my postgraduate degree.
Now, not only am I navigating the absurdity of working abroad (why does everyone like tea so much?), but I’m almost married to a Brit and figuring out how to communicate when you say the same words but don’t mean the same thing.
I’m also always happy to answer questions about my experience studying in London or living as an American in the UK, so feel free to get in touch or share with anyone you know who has questions. I am a wealth of useless knowledge on the expat American life and instantly like anyone who lets me talk about it.
