Can you believe it’s Thursday already? We’re loving the vibe this year at NAFSA and having a blast seeing clients from way back and meeting new ones. Are you in Denver right now? Stop by our booth, #1842, to say hi, taste some treats from southeast Asia and Latin America, and enter for a chance to win a handmade scarf.

But in the meantime… say hello to Christine, AEA’s Social Media + Marketing Intern.

Destination she’s dreaming of: While I’m is always dreaming of far off destinations where I can immerse myself in entirely new cultural experiences, the place that’s currently on my mind is New Zealand. I want to explore all of its natural wonders and learn a little more about the Maori culture — and maybe get my LOTR on and check out some hobbit houses! 😉

Travel tip: Talk to someone new every place you go (especially the locals) — you never know who you’ll meet or what cool place/thing you will learn about. Challenge your personal boundaries and do the unexpected. Traveling isn’t just about experiencing a new place, it is also about learning about yourself.

What she loves about NAFSA: I love that NAFSA brings together great minds in the field of international education all in one place. I’m a first timer at NAFSA this year, but am loving all that it has to offer!
