Meet Amy, studying in Cape Town

It’s spring semester, which means a huge wave of students have or are about to set off around the world for exciting semesters abroad. Here at The Hatchet we like to keep in touch with our staff members who go abroad, and throughout the semester, they will be sending updates to our Passports blog as well as some pieces in print.

I would not say the travel bug ever bit me; instead, I think I was born with it, since I cannot seem to stay in one place for too long. For an aspiring reporter, this is perfect. As I pack up my life at GW and head to the University of Cape Town, I hope that my semester abroad will be an opportunity to find stories in a country in the midst of a political and cultural transition. I expect to have intense culture shock upon landing – not to mention I’ll be going from winter in New York to summer south of the equator – but I’m excited for this adventure. I have no idea what to expect, but isn’t that what traveling is all about?
