Student Story
Amanda Fata ’18
Amanda is a culture and language enthusiast who studied abroad two times during her undergraduate studies at Lesley: first in Tanzania, and then in Granada, Spain. "I’ve had an incredible experience in both Tanzania and Spain," reflects Amanda. "They’re both unique and beautiful countries and I’m extremely grateful I was able to live, study, volunteer, and eat in both. It is fascinating to be able to compare different cultures and it also makes me thankful for my life in the U.S."
