Teresa traveled to England to study English Literature at Oxford University.

"This EL experience opened the door for me to a bigger world. As someone who has grown up from a marginalized background and known very few Asian American writers throughout her life, this experience changed my life and helped me to accomplish more than I could imagine."

"My study abroad experience at the University of Oxford helped me build my future by allowing me to learn more about my absolute favorite English literature period: the Romantic period. Specifically, I was able to dive deeper into the works of Jane Austen and other famous Romantic and Gothic fiction writers.

Through my EL experience, I was able to further analyze the 19th Century English texts and gain valuable skills in reading, writing and critical thinking, all of which are important to my goal of becoming a published author.  This program changed my world."
