Andrea C from Woodbridge took in the sights and sounds of Europe during our Grand Tour Eastern Europe program in 2017. 🗺️ She gives insight into the best way to get the most out of a trip overseas. Check it out below! 👇👇

Current Grade: 11
Blyth Academy Program attended: Grand Tour Eastern Europe 2017

What is one piece of advice you would give to future Blyth Academy International Summers students? Definitely without a doubt, take part in the optional excursions. They are a great way to see more of the city outside of the walking tours and a way to connect with new people on your program.

Where is the #1 vacation destination you’d like to visit?Anywhere in Spain sounds good to me and I hope to go this summer with Blyth Academy!

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? I really wanted to be a ballet dancer. Flash forward to now, I can’t dance and I wish I’d stuck to ballet but it’s definitely not a career option for me anymore.

On February 22, we have an information session in Brienne M.'s (our student rep of the week) hometown of Leamington! Learn more about her below 👇👇

Blyth Academy Program(s) attended: Rome and the Greek Islands 🇮🇹️🇬🇷️

What is one piece of advice you would give to future Blyth Academy International Summers students? Definitely take every opportunity and make the most of it. Your month away is going to fly by and you are going to miss everything about it the day you get home. Every time you’re put in a group, engage with the people in it – I met so many amazing people. Take LOTS of pictures but also, put your camera down and take a look around. Make sure to dedicate your free time to visiting authentic places (restaurants, shops, monuments, etc.), you will be surprised with how much you learn and love in doing so. Also don’t hold back; go on excursions, introduce yourself to others, be you and you will get so much more out of the experience.

What inspired you to be a Student Rep? I am totally in love with what I experienced on my Blyth Academy program this summer! I applied to be a Student Rep so I could share my experiences and influence other to do what I did. I believe that everyone could take something valuable out of the experience whether it be academics, new friends, or new perspectives. 💙

Where is your #1 vacation destination? I love Europe: Spain, Italy and Portugal

Favourite TV show on Netflix right now? Riverdale, of course!
