My artifact is my sketchbook from my trip to London. I took Aimee’s sprink break study abroad class this year and travelled to London. This was a big step for me because it was my first trip outside of the country. I experienced many new things, and as a result my confidence and independence in travelling were boosted. I also learned on this trip how much I enjoy sketching, and how much more special my sketches were to me than my photos. My trip was full of valuable experiences and has encouraged me to want to study abroad again.
