Fall 2019 BCA Student Storytellers

Isabella Medaris | BCA Dunedin, New Zealand

My name is Isabella Medaris and I am currently studying abroad in Dunedin, New Zealand at the University of Otago! I am a Neuroscience Major on a Pre-medical track. I love science, but also have a passion for writing, history, and politics. Outside of academics, I enjoy playing lacrosse for my home university (Juniata College), archery, hiking, fishing and volunteering for the Red Cross. New Zealand is a stunningly beautiful place full of rich history and enormous educational value. I am so proud to be studying at the University of Otago, and to be sharing my experiences with you!

Christine Hill | BCA Marburg, Germany

Hi! My name is Christine Hill. I am going into my junior year at Susquehanna University, located in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. I am majoring in German and International Studies and minoring in Studio Art. I have been studying German for about six years throughout high school and college. This fall I will be participating in the BCA Marburg program which involves living and studying in both Vienna, Austria and Marburg, Germany. Follow me on Instagram: @tinethebean and look out for other social media posts about my study abroad experience!

Lihlu Fuentes | BCA Strasbourg, France

Salut! My name is Lihlu Fuentes and I will be studying abroad in Strasbourg, France! I’m coming abroad through BCA and my home-school, Austin College (go Roos!), as a double major in Psychology and French with a minor in education. In high-school I was introduced to photography and elements of filmmaking and fell in love with capturing uniquel moments to share with others. I love learning languages, exploring cultures, trying new foods, and anything coffee-related. Most importantly, I am excited to share my experiences and adventures abroad! Follow my personal Instagram @queenfontaine for a sneak peek of what’s to come. Next stop: France!
