#LifeInCzechia I am currently a senior at Pennsylvania State University as a Telecommunications Major with a Digital Media Trends and Analytics Minor through the Bellisario College of Communications. I grew up the daughter of a Marine and had the opportunity to travel to twenty countries, more than half of the United States, and I lived in Okinawa, Japan for two and a half years.
