Hello everyone! I’m Brianna Billingsley, a Management and Human Resource student. I am very excited to spend my last summer of college abroad in Barcelona. I am even more excited to share this experience with all of you! Not to be cliché, but I have wanted to visit Barcelona since I saw The Cheetah Girls 2 about 10 years ago. Furthermore, throughout my time at UW- Madison, I learned that Barcelona is a beautiful city that is filled with culture. While I’m there, I will be a Marketing Intern at the Barcelona Chocolate Museum (Museu de Xocolat). To be honest, this internship placement is a bit different from that which I was hoping for, but I am still excited to find out what it has in store for me. In addition to this internship, I will be taking a Spanish class and a course about my internship. I will also be living with a family in Barcelona. This means that I will be speaking Spanish at work, school, and home! It is inevitable that my Spanish will greatly improve, which is my main goal during my time abroad. I am also making it my personal goal to explore Spanish and Catalan culture and try new foods in Barcelona.
Stay tuned to follow me throughout the beautiful city of Barcelona and watch me attain my goals!
