I have had an amazing experience as a French and Francophone Studies major at William & Mary. Coming from a French Canadian background, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I took my first French class. After four years taking classes in the French Department, I can absolutely say that I’ve learned so much. I’ve had the chance to take French classes with a wide variety of topics ranging from learning about Renaissance art history and French Bohemian artists to learning about the current events in France. I’m incredibly thankful for the opportunity to have taken such rich French classes. After graduating, I plan on volunteering in India for the summer with my brother. After that, I was offered a teaching assistant position in Grenoble, France for the 2018-2019 school year, where I will be teaching English to elementary school students. Once that program ends, I plan on returning to Canada, where I will start applying to medical schools, and hopefully become a pediatrician.
