When I was sitting in on a international guest lecture at Penn State and I thought, "This is awesome, I am going to study abroad." Two months later, I left for a year to study and work in Moscow, Russia. I have traveled outside of North America five times since.

The passions that I am confident many of us share for agriculture, education, and culture are what guide every decision I make, including my decision to participate in this global experience. These passions are ingrained so deeply within me that I rarely think twice about decisions I make and as a result I never stop learning.
This experience is important to me because it presents yet another opportunity to learn. I am excited to participate in the language, the food, the education, the agriculture, the music, the ambiance, and the culture of South Korea. Immersion is simply the best way to learn and I cannot think of a better way to continue learning for the benefit of my students.
