Stuart in Madrid, Spain
Hello! My name is Stuart Robbins and I am an American Studies major at Amherst. This semester, I will be seeking to develop a more nuanced and global perspective through my studies at Syracuse University in Madrid, Spain. I am most excited to increase my Spanish language skills and immerse myself in Spanish culture. During the semester I will be navigating the roller coaster of emotions that comes from living in a new culture. I love cooking, exploring the outdoors, and making new connections. During the months away from home, I will be integrating into a new community and a foreign culture. On this blog you will be able to get a sense of how I begin to shift my own assumptions and perspective.
