Mariah Savage ’15 Senior Profile: French and Francophone Studies

savage_mariahMost importantly, my studies in MLL have given me so many more excuses to travel. In actuality though, the world is full of different languages and by taking the time to learn a few, there are countless benefits to be had. I feel that I’m more open-minded and accepting of differences in people because I’ve had the opportunity to learn about different cultures as a result of learning and practicing different languages. It’s not just about memorizing grammar rules and vocab, but more so discovering new perspectives and ideas and appreciating the differences in lifestyles and values. My studies in MLL have made me a more confident and realistic individual because I understand that perfection is not the most crucial aspect in life and I’m more likely to take chances as a result.
