Bonjour! My name is Albrianna Jenkins, and I recently got back from my semester abroad in France! Last spring, I had the opportunity to take part in the Languages and Cultures Program in Caen, France, and it was a TRANSFORMATIONAL experience!
Before my semester abroad, I’d never lived outside of Tennessee and had never traveled outside of the United States. Within those five months of living abroad, I gained personal insight into the French culture, I developed independence while improving my ability to adapt (and speak French), and I formed meaningful and long-lasting relationships with my classmates, locals, and other travelers.
I had a desire to develop a larger perspective of the world to truly carry out Maryville College’s mission statement on a global scale to “search for truth, grow in wisdom, and work for justice and dedicate a life of creativity and service to the peoples of the WORLD.” My time abroad allowed me to develop a sense of purpose, a passion for understanding, and a personal growth.
My experience propels me to advocate the importance of an international perspective, and after graduation, I hope to continue growing and developing by traveling and transforming even more.
