As you may already know, I am a freshman here at Bay Path College. For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to go to Paris. I am very interested and obsessed with fashion and Paris is the home of that. I feel as though my life is complete, being able to go to Paris. The City of Love is important to me for many reasons. First, like I mentioned before, I love fashion. Others are because I have a deep obsession with Coco Chanel, having done countless presentations about her and I long to own one of her signature black quilted bag with the gold chain. I mean, I made a Build a Bear and named her Coco, that’s dedication right there. And just to think, I will be able to go to her first boutique when I am there. This is where I have always wanted to go to. That is going to be life changing for me, that’s how intense I am about Chanel. And what’s even grander is that I have never been out of the country, so having my number 1 travel destination is my first is pretty exciting. And I really want to go there for my Study Abroad, but I think I will be better off to making sure I really want to live there for six months. So why is going on this trip important to me, especially my school experience? Well, for starters, I will be learning about a different culture and I can bring what I learn from France to here at Bay Path. I feel that going to a different country will help me benefit and I will gain so much more knowledge. It’s great that Bay Path College does these amazing trips every year, so hopefully I will be able to go each year I am here! So, basically what I am trying to say here is that with receiving the Fellowship Award, I will be able to go to Paris with a little more money in my pocket, and having the opportunity to see what Paris can offer me.
