#StudyAbroadBecause

pretavoyager-pariscontactsheet-studyabroadLast week I was reading my Twitter feed when I came across a couple travel bloggers I follow using the hashtag #WHtravelbloggers. Drawn to the tweets, I immediately switched over to read all the responses to the hashtag to realize that 100+ travel bloggers had been invited to the White House for a Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship. The next day I watched the entire 4 hour summit that had aired on livestream (unfortunately, the full video link seems to have been replaced by this 45 minute one). Headed up by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs one of the exciting announcements was that the State Department will be opening a new U.S. Office of Study Abroad, which has developed into the hashtag #StudyAbroadBecause.

You can read more about the U.S. Study Abroad initiative on Mashable and Upworthy, and from the travel blogger perspective here. I may not have been at the event, but I decided to use this White House announcement as the perfect excuse to publish my first article on Medium: My Best Piece of Advice: Study Abroad.
