Barcelona SAE Featured Alumni Interview: Stephanie Patterson

Hola a todos! We are excited to present our first featured alumna, Stephanie Patterson.  Stephanie currently attends Chapman University in California and participated in Barcelona SAE’s summer program at Barcelona International College (BIC) as well as the internship program last summer.  Recently, Stephanie won the title of Miss South Coast 2012 and will be competing for Miss California in July 2012. Although Stephanie has been very busy in Orange County lately with her new title, graduation, and her sister’s wedding, she took the time to answer some questions for Barcelona SAE about how her experience abroad has impacted her life.

Barcelona SAE: Was one of your favorite things about living...
