I am so grateful for the past four years studying French at William and Mary. C’était une joie! I will always remember analyzing revolutionary cartoons from Professor Pacini’s French Revolution Class, discussing everything from Amélie to Agnes Varda with Professor Brutsche, and listening to Professor Brehm play jazz in our class on French Bohemia. I loved studying abroad in Paris during my junior year, and I am excited to return to France, as an English teaching assistant in Grenoble through TAPIF. After my year in France, I hope to attend graduate school for English. My time here has truly deepened my love for French language and culture, and I know I will carry everything I’ve learned into the future — and I will certainly keep speaking French. Merci mille fois.
