First Cup of Tea:

About me!

My name is Amy Townend (she, her, hers) and I am a rising junior at Bates College where I am an Economics major and Computer Science minor. I am a part of the varsity swim team and several clubs at Bates. When I’m not swimming or hanging with friends, you can find me hammocking with a good book in my hands or drinking a cup of tea in the library. I was born in Cornwall, England but moved to Philadelphia when I was 2 years old which makes me a dual citizen!

I will be a part of the Globalization and European Economies Core class while studying abroad and I am excited about our study tours to Vienna and Bratislava. Although I was born in Europe, I have only visited London and I am very excited to have the opportunity to live a similar lifestyle to my parents had growing up. This abroad trip allows me to go back to my roots and see if I want to work abroad after graduating. Follow my blog for tips, mishaps, and a good cup of tea as I explore Copenhagen!
