Hello welcome back to the Student Explorer, with a quick update! Don’t worry I haven’t disappeared forever and I haven’t given up on the blog either! It has been a long time since my last post about Chellah in Rabat, Morocco and a lot has happened since then. I wanted to make this blog post just to share what I’ve been up to and the direction I hope to take the blog in the future!
So- What has The Student Explorer been up to?
Well it has really been jam-packed, from my trip to Seville, to finishing my studies in Morocco and now starting a whole new study abroad experience in Sciences Po Paris, I have been super busy! Sadly I have neglected posting in a long time, but the good thing about being so busy is that I have so much more to share with you from my travels, to Erasmus advice and how to get the most out of your study abroad experience.
I have really learned a lot so far through my travels and I hope that I can update the blog and my journeys so that students like me can be more prepared for their own adventures.
A new direction?
When I started this blog I thought it would be mainly personal and almost like a diary for me, updating it about every week or so. But I found that I was doing that more through Instagram (so follow me there!) and the blog tended to be more for sharing my experience of a particular monument, attraction or something I learned. So what I plan to do in the future is to reserve the blog for trips and tricks when studying abroad, how to succeed in studying away from home and then a few posts sharing my personal experiences! I think this is the best way to share the information that will help you in you study abroad experience.
What now for The Student Explorer?
Well right now I am studying in Sciences Po Paris for a semester. I am taking several classes in French and English/ I tried to choose classes mainly on the Middle East to stay in with what I study back in my home university Trinity. Some of the classes include Gender in the Middle East, The Ethics of War, The Invention of Africa and the Colonial Library- Decolonizing Knowledge. I will share more about my classes, and my time in Sciences Po in future posts!
That’s all for today’s update!
Until next time,
