Hello there. My name is Ali and I’m a junior in college, going to school in south east Kansas studying communications and International studies.
During the Spring 2013 semester I will be studying abroad in Jyväskylä, Finland. This will be the first time studying abroad, or even leaving the USA at all for that matter. I will be using this blog to record the process of applying, getting a student residency permit, filling out paperwork, packing, researching, freaking out, etc.
Then when I’m finally in Finland you will get to hear about my many adventures and new experiences. Enjoy!
