Hey! I’m Cahleb Derry, a Harvard alum who studied History & Literature. I spent my junior spring semester in Rome, Italy with Temple University. I had never studied Italian, and had only been to Europe once before. Thus, I couldn't wait to explore all that Rome had to offer. As a low-income student, I appreciated being afforded the opportunities to travel to places that I only would have dreamed of as a child. The prospect of meeting people from a new place and creating memories in a foreign environment was so exciting to me.
Hi everyone, I’m Carter Wynne! I'm originally from Washington, D.C. and I studied at Colby College majoring in art history and women, gender, and sexuality studies. I spent my spring semester of 2019 studying at Temple University’s campus in Tokyo, Japan. I’ve always been extremely fascinated by Japanese art, from Edo period painting to Takashi Murakami, and I can’t wait to delve into that realm more deeply while studying abroad. In addition to my passion for Japanese art, I’m also a committed social activist and a proud woman of color.
Hi, I'm Gwen! I was a Global Studies major and Religion minor. I spent the spring of my sophomore year in Rabat, Morocco! I couldn't wait for the opportunity to not only practice my Arabic, but also expand and apply the global mindset I have developed in my classes at Temple! I wanted to learn more about how the human experience varies around the world and becoming a more dynamic global citizen during my first experience in a non-western country.
What’s up! I’m Giovanny Zapata! I was a Health Professions major and Public Health and Biology double minor with a Genome Medicine Certificate (yes, it’s a mouthful to say). At Temple, being an Owl Team Leader for 2 years showed me how inspiration is a powerful, vital tool that I hope to reciprocate as a storyteller. As a first generation, Latinx college student and a son of two immigrants, I thought studying abroad was never a possibility for me. Furthermore, as a pre-med student, I was advised that a full semester study abroad experience was never feasible. Yet, here I am!
Hi! I'm Susannah Duncan, a writer, aspiring comics artist, and English major. I'm from the Chicago area, my home college is Bryn Mawr, where I was a member of the Acabellas and the Shakespeare Performance Troupe. When not writing or drawing, I like reading in cafes, exploring, Harry Potter, Studio Ghibli, and cats. I've been learning Japanese since high school and was so excited to finally put my language skills to use in Tokyo!
My name is Paul; I was a General Science and Teaching major in the TUTeach program. I like teaching, good food, and travel.
Dan was excited to explore the music and food Japan has to offer!
Eve Harbison attended Messiah College and was very thankful to study abroad through Temple Rome’s program in her junior year. She doubled-majored in communication and sociology/anthropology, which is a mouthful. But it also sets the scene for the perfect academic background to use for and learn in while studying abroad. Having never traveled to Europe before, she was eager to begin meeting new people, trying authentic Italian food, and learning as much as possible about the culture of Roma.
Cecilia D’Arville has a global studies major with a history minor and is from Richmond, Virginia. Her love of history and international affairs inspired her decision to study abroad during her time at Temple. Through working as an Owl Team Leader, she got to know Temple’s Main Campus pretty well, so she grew ready to explore Temple Rome. At Temple, she was in the Improv Club and the A Cappella group Jewkebox. She spends most of her free time watching SNL reruns and singing karaoke. Aside from comedy and singing, she enjoys reading, baking, and hiking.
Bonjour! Amma-Sika Adomako was a psychology major from a small town in New Jersey called Columbus. By the time she had finished high school, she had outgrown her small town and was ready to take on something bigger. Temple and the city of Philadelphia was the perfect place for her to grow. She quickly grew to love the city for all that it allowed her to do. During her time at Temple, she grew her passion for advocacy and the African diaspora to guide her to take a position on the executive board of the Organization of African Students, a student org.
