“My main goal while abroad was to improve my Spanish.“

Deanna studied Marine Biology at Hawaii Pacific University and sought a completely different experience by studying and interning in Seville, Spain for a semester. Deanna's goal was to improve her Spanish and have a truly cultural internship. So, she interned at a Flamenco Museum. She enjoyed her experience abroad so much that she worked at the study abroad office at HPU encouraging others to go abroad.

Where did you travel?

I got to travel to Morocco, Portugal, France, Italy and throughout Spain.

What were your favorite activities?

I loved working at the Flamenco Museum and go out for tapas with my friends who were from all over the world.

How did your experience abroad affect your marketability?

Throughout my latest round of interviews, I was amazed to see how interested each company was with my experience abroad. Even though knowing Spanish was not a requirement for any of the positions I was looking for, it was a definite plus.
