I want to study abroad
I’m really excited for eighth grade. I want to go to Tallwood, which has the Global Studies and World Languages Academy, because I want to study abroad. That’s always something I’ve wanted to do — like, go to Australia and Istanbul and everywhere! We do capstone, which is a mini senior project for eighth-graders, and I feel like that will mold me in a way so that I can study abroad. I think I want my capstone to focus on travel or kids who live in different countries and how I can help them.
It sounds like you’re excited about eighth grade because you really want to get to high school and travel.
Yes! I’ve been to Togo in Africa. My parents are from there. It feels very homey. I know a lot of the people there, but there’s kind of a language difference. That’s why I took French because they speak French there. I really like it over there.
