About me

Hi all!

My name is Tamara. Friends call me Tammy because I tell them to after they inevitably mispronounce my name (though I do love the French pronunciation).

To put a face to the name:



I am a senior at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Washington, D.C. majoring in international history. This past semester, I studied abroad at Sciences Po, in Bordeaux, France and I am now en route to participate in a six-week internship program in Saint Omer, France where I will be working for a local newspaper.

What started of as a collection of funny study abroad stories and some travel guides, this blog has since evolved to include deeper cultural analysis of my beloved France (and anywhere else I may venture next) and reposts of feature stories that I produce as a reporter for The Caravel. This blog will continue to grow with me, as I further develop my interests and writing skills, and I hope that you will join me for the ride!

So, without further ado…

C’est parti !
