Letter from Gold Awardee, Megan

Hello Cathy,
I hope you’re having a great summer and all is well! During my first week of summer I traveled to Europe with my family. We were able to visit the highlights of Rome all in a day, experience some Flamenco dancing in Spain and even got to walk down the famous La Rambla street in Barcelona.

Once we returned it was straight back to school for me! I decided to stay at UCSB and take some summer school classes to get ahead. Along with that came moving into my very first apartment. What an exciting experience this has been! Much better than the dorms, but also a very good experience. I had a lot of fun apartment shopping and getting everything ready for school. School has been going very well and fall quarter is just around the corner and I’m excited for a new year filled with new adventures!

I hope everyone fully enjoyed their summer!
Megan and Hope
