Employment: Fox Carolina News (Photojournalist)
Brie’s experience studying abroad gave her the power to genuinely discover who she was and what she wanted to be. Without the comforts of home, she experienced more independence, craved adventure, and was unafraid to explore new things.
Of her time abroad, she says, “My experience studying abroad was a once of a life time opportunity. Not only did I get to live in a different country, but I also got to meet some of the most amazing people that I have ever met. A great philosopher once said that “it’s the journey that counts, not the destination. My time abroad stood strong to this quote. I had the honor of meeting people that I would have never met otherwise, in a multicultural and cosmopolitan city.”
Since graduating, Brie has worked in fashion communications as a press specialist and has recently joined Fox Carolina News as a photo journalist and editor. She credits her study abroad experience as having a significant impact on her professional success and has provided her a broader perspective of people and cultures.
