I am a typical American girl living in the suburbs of North Carolina who desperately wants to explore the world and better understand other countries. This drew me to United World College, a program that connects teens from all over the world at 12 different campuses with the goal of increasing international understanding and fostering more relationships between countries. I will be attending UWC Atlantic College in Wales from 2013-2015! This blog will serve as a way to keep in touch with family and friends and possibly other students who want to apply for United World College!
