My name is Amanda Sonzogni and I am studying in Copenhagen, Denmark for the next 6 weeks! I am going to be a junior at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania and I am a marketing major with an entrepreneurship minor. I currently live in a small town called Long Valley, NJ. I am taking 2 courses while I am at DIS for the next 6 weeks and I am thoroughly excited to share all of my experiences!
I have never traveled to Europe before and I am glad that Copenhagen is my first experience! I knew I always wanted to study abroad but never thought of Denmark as being the place to go. I decided to choose DIS when my college study abroad advisor mentioned the awesome opportunities that DIS had. I loved how interactive all the classes would be and how the second session of classes had a week-long study tour to another country. Living in NJ, I travel to NYC a lot and experienced the rushed, dirty and stressful life of the big apple. When arriving in Copenhagen, I noticed how colorful and clean the city is. Everyone is very polite and the scenic views are absolutely stunning. I love the atmosphere the city of Copenhagen gives off and I know this positive energy will help carry me for the next 6 weeks!
