Jeanne Delgado, America

Study Abroad

Jeanne Delgado came to Melbourne for a semester from Emory University in Georgia in the United States of America. "The idea of leaving behind friends you already have, extracurriculars you are committed to, and professors you know seems daunting. Yet the benefits you get from studying abroad truly make you forget ever having any hesitation or worry. My program was designed around an independent research project at Bio21, which is a research institute at the University of Melbourne specialising in medical, agricultural and environmental biotechnology. It was the perfect combination of successfully learning how transient science is internationally and getting to know the faculty and fellow students that I worked with every day. I have named Melbourne the 'Most Liveable City in the World' simply because it has something for every occasion. I met one of my good friends while abroad, who personally showed me and two other exchange students the Great Ocean Road - Australian hospitality at its finest! My study abroad experience allowed me to make friends I will have for life."
