About Me


My name is Jemma and I am a sophomore at James Madison University. I am majoring in Social Work with double minors in Family Studies and Medical Spanish. In the Fall of 2017, I will be studying abroad in Salamanca, Spain, and have created this blog to not only document those travels, but future trips to be had.

However, I will be writing about how I am preparing for the trip, as well as tips and tricks of how I keep up with my Spanish and stay organized. I also have a series called The SOWK Experiences, where I reflect on some of the cool opportunities I have been given through the social work program at JMU.

Also, as I pursue my various travels, those will start popping up in the top menu. At the moment, I don’t have much content up there, but that will change this summer.
