Elijah Peters: My Study Abroad Scholarship!
Studying abroad in Germany will be a fantastic and intellectual experience for me. While in Berlin, I will be taking courses on German history, as well as the German language. These courses are pertinent to my interests: I hope to become a professor of Germanic languages and history. In addition to studying, I will also be traveling as part of my program. I will travel to Dresden and Prague, and will have the opportunity to interact with and learn about and from the people there. On my semester abroad, I hope to gain a few things. First, I hope that being immersed among the German people will allow me to master the German language. I have many German relative I’d like to be able to communicate with! Second, I hope all that I learn about history and people while I am there will contribute to forming a broader and open-minded world view. And third, I hope to better myself and my character while abroad, through experiences with foreign peoples and cultures. These are invaluable experiences, and I am grateful for the scholarship that honorsociety.org has provided me so that I may have these experiences.
