Bonjour! My name is Shelby and I am from Portland, Oregon. This fall, I will be studying abroad in Angers, France for 3 months. Here, I will be photographing and filming my journey and writing about my adventures in Angers and a few other places that I will travel during my stay.

I am a senior at Portland State University. I took 2 years of French at PSU, and I am a psychology major/French minor. The reason for choosing me to study abroad is simple. I love traveling, and I crave the experience. I could not be happier!

In addition to travel, I have a passion for writing and photography. So it makes sense to use a blog as a creative outlet for my trip. I would also start experimenting shooting video and doing short films, so they might be included on this blog as well.
