Hi! My name is Samantha Strong, and I am a third-year history major pursuing minors in Italian Studies and English. I studied abroad through the Foundation of International Education (FIE) - Beyond120 in London program and was lucky enough to live and learn across the pond for eight weeks in the Summer of 2023. When not attending my British Life and Cultures class, I interned at The Courtauld Gallery, which boasts some of the world’s most renowned Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works of art - I cannot begin to tell you how much I miss spending my breaks alongside Monet’s Antibes (1888) and Rubens’s Landscape by Moonlight (1640). My experience with The Courtauld and studying abroad strengthened my confidence and amplified my curiosity in ways I could have never imagined, and I loved every minute of it!
