The Start of Something New

Hi Everybody!

My name is Megana, and I am looking forward to a exciting semester in Santiago, Chile. But before I go, I would like to share a little bit about myself. I’ll make it quick so I don’t bore anyone. :)

I am a junior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am majoring in International Studies, with a concentration in pre-Med. I am still not entirely sure about what career path I’d like to pursue, but I’m looking into all my options.

I live with my mother in a suburb of Chicago, but I also frequently travel to New York to visit my sister and her husband. I have become very close with my family, especially in the past few years after my father passed away.

Currently, my favorite shows are “How I Met Your Mother” and “30 Rock”. To anyone in need of a good laugh, I would definitely recommend watching these shows. And I will try to continue to watch this show in Chile. Thank you internet. However, this season, these shows have been slightly sub-par. Maybe try season 2?

I don’t read too many books, but I make sure I keep myself updated on current events by reading news magazines and internet articles. I love listening to music, as long as it’s not anything too depressing. And I also enjoy dancing and singing (mostly in the shower in order to avoid making a fool of myself due to my lack of talent). But I feel that when a song has meaningful lyrics, music truly has the power to inspire those who listen to it. Hence, the High School Musical reference in the title of this post.

Anyway, as I embark on this Chilean adventure, I look forward to documenting my experiences and sharing more about myself.
