My name is Rachel, and I am studying abroad in Stockholm, Sweden this semester at DIS. My core course is Affective Neuroscience: Emotions, Cognition, and Behavior.
I am a junior at Stonehill College, which is just outside of Boston, MA, where I am also studying neuroscience. I grew up in New York but my parents have recently moved to Illinois, so that is where I spend my breaks from school.
I wanted to create this blog to share my abroad experience and to have these posts as memories that I can look back on. I can’t wait to share my experience while I am here for the next four months on my travels, academics, and the new friends I meet along the way!
