What was your most memorable experience abroad?
"I have had so many memorable experiences abroad from traveling on the highest cable car in the world to walking on a glacier in Patagonia. Ultimately, I think the most memorable thing was when Porteños (locals in Buenos Aires) didn’t believe me when I said I was from the United States (they believed I was a native Spanish speaker)!"
