My name is Lydia, and this blog is my platform to share my experiences and thoughts as I study abroad in Bathurst, Australia. I have spent five semesters at Humboldt State University, studying kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science and health promotion. Through my studies, I have found my passion in promoting community health. I plan to further this interest at Charles Sturt University as I immerse myself in the Australian culture. Beyond my education, I enjoy weight lifting, yoga, making vegan meals, and spending time with my boyfriend.
