Hello! My name is Gemma and I am a student in the College of Business Administration at the University of Pittsburgh. Currently, I plan on majoring in Accounting, but am still exploring the possibility of other majors. I will also be working towards a certificate in Leadership and Ethics starting this coming Fall.
I’m from a town about 45 minutes outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I love travelling and since my whole family is from England, I’ve been there several times, but nowhere else in Europe, so I’m very excited to get the opportunity to go to Germany in less than a month now! I also love photography, so I may be stopping every now and then when I get the chance to snap a picture of the cool surroundings.
I chose the Plus3 program because I was excited to have the opportunity to study abroad so early on in my college experience. I specifically chose Germany due to the program focus. The automotive industry has been something I have been interested in since I was little. Since my uncle worked in a garage, I would help out sometimes and hear so many facts about cars and the industry that I wanted to see it first hand and learn even more about it. On top of learning about the automotive industry, I am also super excited to explore Germany, including the sights, food, and culture, but also to be exposed to a different part of Europe altogether.
