Before I depart to Spain… let me introduce myself

Hello everyone! My name is Candis-Monique Hardin. I am a graduate student in the Masters of Social Work Program at USF and have just finished my first year in the program. When the opportunity to study abroad presented itself, I decided to take advantage of the study abroad program in lieu of traditional summer classes. I will be participating in the Socio-cultural Context of People’s Health in Spain and will have the opportunity to learn about the Socio-cultural context of people’s health in Barcelona (second largest city in Spain) and Alicante (semi-urban) area. With the financial assistance of my family, the USF Federal Credit Union Passport Scholarship Endowed Fund Study Abroad Scholarship, and CBCS Study Abroad Scholarship has helped to make this study abroad possible for me. I am looking forward to being emerged into the culture of Spain and seeing the world through this new lens.
