I am so thankful for the opportunities the French department at William & Mary has given me over the past four years. I’ve had great professors and met some of my closest friends in this department. When I was a freshman, I remember taking the French freshman seminar with Professor Magali Compan—and how incredibly intimidated I was by my fellow students. Looking back now, my freshman self had no idea just how much I would learn from professors like Professor Compan. From my classes on campus to my unforgettable semester abroad in Montpellier, I consider my experiences with the French department as essential milestones in my time at W&M. As for my future, I will be attending University of Virginia School of Law this coming fall, with the hopes of one day using my French as an international lawyer. So to everyone in the French department who helped me along the way: Merci à vous tous, et vous me manquerez énormément !
