White House Whirlwind

When I tell people, “I study Politics at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.,” their first response is, “Well that is definitely the perfect place to be!” Having the chance to study politics three miles away from some of our most powerful lawmakers has been an incredible experience. As a CUA student, I can hop on a metro train after classes and gain … Continue reading White House Whirlwind

Virginia, ¿americana o madrileña?

Hello again from Madrid! Since my last update, I’ve explored more of Madrid, traveled to Salamanca, and most recently trained to Lisbon, Portugal.
