Towerlight Column Fall 2014: On Site in London

We are proud to have another study abroad student writing for the Towerlight this semester about her time abroad! Sydney Adamson is headed to the American International University in London, UK. Before she heads out, we had a chance to ask her a few questions!

Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hi! My name is Sydney Adamson. I’m double majoring in General Design Studies and Mass Comm: Journalism, graduating in 2015. I’m originally from Sykesville, MD and during the fall 2014 semester I will be living and learning in London, England through AIFS Abroad.

Q. Why did you choose your location?
I decided to study in London because I’m very interested in all the culture and opportunity that the city holds. There is a lot of amazing music coming out of England as a whole and that’s something I’m very into as well since I’m working toward becoming an entertainment journalist. It doesn’t hurt that I speak the language, either…

Q. What’s that #1 bucketlist item you are most looking forward to?
I’ve always wanted to live in another country, so just living in London checks one thing off of my bucket list. I’m also looking forward to traveling to other countries, like Ireland, France and The Netherlands. It will be super easy to access those countries since I’ll already be in England and they’re all on my bucket list of places to visit.

Q. Is there anything you’re worried about?
When it comes down to it, I’m most worried about money. I’m not the best at sticking to a budget but I will be setting myself a weekly limit and hopefully I’ll stay true to it. Wish me luck!

Q. Anything else you’d like to add about your upcoming adventure?
I know that the 3.5 months I spend in London will be unforgettable no matter what and I’m so antsy to see just what they have to offer. I’m so pumped to share my adventures with my study abroad column, too!
