Graduate Student
USC School of Social Work

“I did a French immersion program in Paris, France, through Sweet Briar College. It was terrifying, challenging, exciting, liberating and utterly enlightening. There is not a day that goes by that I do not build upon the lessons learned during my time abroad.” Read more.

Linda Park ’12
Studio Production Assistant
Nasty Gal (CA)

“I interned at a newly-opened gallery called Galerie Marie Cini in the Marais arts district of Paris.
