I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and I had the amazing opportunity to attend the four-week field school in Ferns, Ireland. Prior to receiving the Vera Campbell scholarship, I had never traveled outside California and the states surrounding it. Attending this field school pushed me to put myself out there and do a lot of scary things like traveling alone for the first time to Europe, staying with a family of complete strangers, as well as having roommates I had never met before.
