Erica Biagini and I Stumble Upon a Great Strategy in Selecting a Study Abroad Location During Her Interview About Bilbao, Spain
“I’m not going to say that every single day was easy during my time abroad . . . but looking back, the fact that I was able to persevere through those times is priceless to me.” — Erica Biagini
I've interviewed many a student who studied abroad in Spain, but none that lived in Bilbao; a city with a population of 345,000 that's nestled in the north of the water surrounded country.
"Cozy up with a good book" is how I'd describe Erica's interview. Only in this case, the book is your headphones and it's Erica on tape. She does a great job of telling multiple stories inside of her own story and we had a lot of fun doing this one.
My favorite part was her unsuccessful attempt to have a traditional Thanksgiving in Spain. 🦃not so much, so she had to settle for 🐓.
I'm excited about the graphic 🎨that goes along with this interview, too. I've been weaving this theme into the interviews and articles and it deals with the selection process.
