Welcome to my Blog

Hi, everyone! My name is Robynn and I am excited to be getting my travel blog started. I want to start by introducing myself and giving thanks to the people and organizations that helped make my journey ahead possible.

I am a junior first-generation student at the University of Mississippi studying for my B.B.A in Marketing with an emphasis in Global Supply Chain Management and a minor in Entrepreneurship. I am a member of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, the honors society Phi Kappa Phi, and the Ole Miss School of Business Chief Emissary Officers. I have also been involved in the Ole Miss Scuba Program through which I have become a Certified Open Water Scuba Diver.

Coming up in just a few days, I will be starting my ISA study abroad program in Sydney, NSW, Australia, and this will be one of my first international experiences and my first extended stay abroad. I will be attending the University of Sydney full-time for Semester 1 2020 where I will be taking classes including Consumer Behavior, Strategic Management, and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. During this time, I also plan to begin research for my Honors College thesis studying business internships abroad compared to those here in the United States. I am also signed up to participate in the University of Sydney MATES Abroad Program and the University of Sydney Union (USU). 

I would like to thank a few people and organizations who have made this incredible journey of studying and researching abroad possible for me.

  • The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College Fellowship
  • The Mobley Scholarship
  • The Wilhite Family 
  • The Patterson Family
  • Mr. Stephen Davis
  • Mrs. Debra Mcgee
  • International Studies Abroad
  • The University of Mississippi Study Abroad Office

To my donors, your generous donations and scholarships have been a huge support in addition to my financial aid. Without your support, this year and a half of planning may have resulted in me not being able to commence my studies abroad. I cannot express to you all how grateful I am for your tremendous support and I hope to keep you all updated on my journey through my blog. 

You can all find my travel blog at robynn21.wordpress.com, and I hope you will all keep in touch while I’m in the land down under!

Hi, everyone! My name is Robynn and I am a business student at Ole Miss studying Marketing, Global Supply Chain Management, and Entrepreneurship. I am studying abroad at the University of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia this Spring because I have recently discovered my passion for travel and learning about new cultures. I look forward to meeting new people, taking classes at USyd, and traveling to New Zealand and Fiji during my breaks. I am also a certified scuba diver and I look forward to seeing the Great Barrier Reef!
