Hello! My name is Mikayla Monroe and welcome to my study abroad blog.

A little about me…

I’m from Washington State and extremely fortunate to have studied abroad Summer 2017 through AIFS and Education Abroad (EA) at Western Washington University (WWU). Shout out to scholarships!

I’m a Business Administration-Management Information Systems (MIS) major and Business Analytics minor at WWU. I love communicating ideas (and writing, and making speeches, and doing beach cleanups, and planting trees, and getting stuff done…) and creatively making websites. I coded a website in JavaScript to countdown the days until my departure for Ireland–see it on my Instagram account @studyabroadwithmikayla! Blogging and responding to certain prompts during my study abroad experience also qualifies me to earn a Travel Writer Certificate through EA.

In Summer 2017 I studied International Marketing and Managing in International Environments at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth campus, which is about 30 minutes west of Dublin.

I was also an official AIFS Study Abroad Student Blogger! Check out blog.aifsabroad.com for more info and to view fellow bloggers in other countries.

I couldn’t be more excited to study in Ireland, I wanted to for YEARS! I’m excited to share this experience with you. Make sure to check out my study abroad Instagram for daily updates @studyabroadwithmikayla
