Hi I’m Tiffany! I’m was a biology major with a minor in public health. I spent my fall semester in Tokyo, Japan. I have spent most of my time in college focusing solely on biology, so this was a great opportunity for me to study other disciplines and learn things I normally wouldn’t. I love to wander around cities when I travel and Tokyo’s 240 square miles provided plenty of opportunities to discover some of my new favorite places.
I'm Imani Pugh, and I studied communication and social influence and global Studies. I went to the University of Ghana in Legon, Ghana for the fall semester in 2019. At Temple, I've found a perfect combination of my interests in communication and global Studies while also being involved in the Temple community through various student organizations on campus. I have been a dancer my entire life and my love for traditional West African dance and music has led me to study abroad in Ghana. I'm looking forward to sharing all of the exciting aspects of this life-changing experience.
Hi, I'm Ritapa! I'll be abroad in Barcelona throughout Fall 2019, the first semester of my senior year. As a geography student, I hope to understand the differences between American and European planning, and how they affect livability in urban landscapes.
Hello! My name is Sruthi, and I studied at the University of Illinois at Chicago majoring in finance. I studied abroad at Temple University Japan in Tokyo in the summer.

Hey, I’m Ali Tintera! I was a mathematical economics and Spanish double major and I studied in Oviedo, Spain the summer of my junior year. I couldn't wait to share my experiences as both a STEM and Liberal Arts student spending my summer abroad. When I’m not in class, I love to explore Philadelphia and try out the diverse range of cuisines offered in the city. I was so excited to learn about the culture of Spain, as well as explore the rich culinary traditions of Oviedo.
Hi, I'm Gemma! I studied abroad in Tokyo, Japan in summer 2019 before starting my junior year. At Temple, I studied at the Tyler School of Art, and I majored in Glass and Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM. As an art and design student, I hoped to learn about and observe the glass arts culture in Japan as well as other aspects of the country's art history. I am also a competitive dancer, and I temporarily joined a Japanese dance school during my stay. This experience will exposed me to new ways of learning and thinking.
Hi! I'm Maeve, and I studied anthropology with a concentration in human biology. I spent my summer in 2019 studying Irish culture, literature, and history in Derry, Northern Ireland! I'm originally from the Philly area, but Temple has already taken me overseas--I spent my spring semester in 2018 studying at Temple Rome. As a pre-med student, I never expected to be able to study abroad even once, let alone twice. I'm was thrilled to return to Europe, this time getting in touch with my Irish roots.
I'm Charleanne Rogers, but I go by Chuck. I studied neuroscience in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple and minored in art. I spent the summer of2019 at Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea. Studying both neuroscience and art has given me the ability to look at life from all angles and to appreciate different perspectives on culture. Alongside of culture values, I am very interested in eating culture, as I have many dietary restrictions, so I love exploring for different options that I can try.

I am also a first-generation born American and I am excited to share my experiences with you!
