Nepal Semester Student's Catherine Von Holt's photograph of the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu.


Heyo! My name is Blake and I am from Durango, Colorado. I am currently studying Geography and Leadership Studies at University of Colorado Boulder. Being born and raised in Colorado, I spent much of my time exploring and cherishing the mountains and cannot wait to experience the Himalayas.

I chose this study abroad program for many reasons, but mostly for the emphasis on immersion. I am really looking forward to connecting and learning from the culture, the people, the country, and all of you. I am trying as much as possible to avoid coming in with any preconceived notions about the experiences I will have, but I can tell you for sure that my excitement grows each and every day. Cannot wait to meet you all and embark on an amazing semester! Happy Holidays!
