Catherine Powell '15 met up with Katherine Baker '16 while they were both studying in Valencia, Spain this summer!
We recently heard from Catherine Powell '15, who has been studying in Spain. While she was there, she met up with Katherine Baker '16, who was also studying in Valencia through a different program. Both are attending the University of Virginia.
"I studied abroad in Valencia, Spain this summer. I lived with a Spanish family and took 2 classes as part of a global health program—Spanish for Medical Professionals and Comparative Health Care Systems. I am a 3rd year at University of Virginia School of Nursing, so the information I learned is very applicable to my future career. My Spanish improved drastically, and I hope I will be able to communicate well with my Spanish-speaking patients. When I wasn’t in class, I enjoyed exploring Valencia and other incredible cities in Spain like Madrid, Granada, and Barcelona. I loved my experience studying in Spain, and I cannot wait to go back!"
