Medill 2018

Hi! My name is Jacqui, and I'm studying Journalism and Integrated Marketing Communications. I studied abroad twice during my third year (junior year) at Northwestern. In the Fall I participated in the Madrid Spanish & European Studies and in the Spring I completed my journalism residency in Johannesburg, South Africa. My favorite part about studying abroad in Madrid was being able to travel with one of my best friends, who is also my sorority sister. Working abroad in Johannesburg was quite different from studying abroad, but it was extremely valuable because I feel like I interacted more with the community.
