This is a blog about my study abroad experience at University of Limerick and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in Limerick City, Ireland. I will be spending four and a half months traveling, studying, and growing. This blog will capture my mistakes and thrills to share with my friends back home and to fulfill a requirement for my minor in University Honors at Wichita State University.
I am a Junior at Wichita State University studying music education, linguistics, ethnomusicology, and anthropology. I strive to learn in unusual ways which has led me to serve as an Undergraduate Fellow for the Dorothy and Bill Cohen Honors College. At school, I perform in operas and with WSU choirs, serve on the Honors College Student Council, and grade papers for fun. Irish trad music has ransacked my life and left me dragging my harp from festivals to workshops and back. I’m always telling stories either through song, coffee dates, or my blog.
