My name is Elizabeth Taormina and I am a sophomore at American University. I am majoring in Public Health (officially declared the last week of July) with a minor in Biology. I will be spending this Fall semester abroad in Udupi, India to learn more about the country and gain a more holistic educational experience. I am ecstatic about my courses at Manipal University! They are primarily focused on the discipline epidemiology, which is very exciting considering my strong interest in that public health field. Additionally, I have the amazing opportunity to participate in extra curricular activities, such as Hindi and yoga classes at the university. The main purpose of this blog is to document my experiences abroad and share those stories with my friend Dilpreet.
