I wanted to post this video to demonstrate the wide variety of opportunities available to students who choose to study abroad. From my experience, this year I have been part of the Gospel Choir Voices of Imani and the A Capella group B.E.A.T.S. here at Boston College. I have also somehow managed to become the bass player of the band Juice here on campus, who just last week won the Battle of the Bands competition at BC, and are opening for the rapper Hoodie Allen at the Campus music festival Modstock.
This year has been absolutely incredible, and so many of my greatest experiences have been through the music I have shared with the people here at BC. It is through music that I have been able to overcome cultural differences and find my place here in America, and it really has been the greatest year of my life.
I feel like this video really demonstrates that there is a massive range of opportunities available for any student who chooses to study abroad, wherever you end up going. If you embrace the experience to its fullest you will find yourself doing things you would have never dreamed about a year ago.
So yeah, I’m going to be playing on a stage in front of hundreds of people tomorrow afternoon, and if someone had told me that would happen this time last year, I would never have believed them…
