Hi everyone! My name is Kylie and I’m a marketing intern in the University of Arizona Study Abroad Office, as well as both a former study abroad student at UA Barcelona and a future study abroad student at UA Sydney. My passion for traveling has taken me to 31 countries so far, and I have plans to explore more soon!

I am a double major in marketing and business management with a minor in global business and will graduate in May 2025. Adventure and connection fuel me, which has led me on this path to see and meet as many new places and people as possible. After graduation, I want to combine my passions for marketing and culture immersion by pursuing a career in global marketing with the ultimate goal of working in global brand management someday.

I believe immersing yourself in a new culture is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. Through my travels I’ve grown a lot, and some of my biggest lessons have been the importance of adaptability and my deep appreciation for new perspectives.

As I embark on my next adventure at UA Sydney this fall, I’ll share my experience through my own blog column: Ky Goes Global. I’ll be sharing my personal journey abroad as well as tips for navigating the logistics of study abroad including housing, academics, wellness, and weekend travel. Please join me on this journey!
