UWC is not the only thing that makes up my personality, I am also a proud Irish woman, a devoted scout and an ultimate frisbee fan. I really enjoy hiking and camping, and am looking forward to exploring Oregon’s trails and campsites. The school’s outdoor pursuits program was something that attracted me to apply to the school and I am excited to get stuck into it.
I plan on pursuing an International Affairs major, so the International affairs department at L&C was another factor in my decision to study there. I also have never lived in a city (coming from a rural Irish village here), so am very excited to explore Portland.
This autumn will be my first time in the U.S., but before heading there I am traveling to South Korea this summer for the World Scout Jamboree. I am incredibly excited to travel there, to meet other international scouts and to experience South Korean culture.
Finally, at L&C I am looking forward to meeting new people, to get out hiking more often and to enjoy time spent outdoors. I am also looking forward to challenging myself academically and to study International affairs.
