I cannot believe I am writing this second blog knowing I fly home in under 7 weeks! It’s crazy to think I have already been here in the US for 10 weeks. I have to say, the American food has definitely won me over – it’s amazing!
I’m Jenny, a second year Education Studies student and new student blogger. I’m currently writing my very first blog post from the other side of the world!
