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.
