Philip did a great job here, and for me it felt more like I was listening to a story than I was conducting an interview. His slight southern accent and calming voice make it clear why his music video took home the grand prize.
As with every interview, we touch on different topics surrounding Philip’s trip, but unlike every interview, he did some things not many others do, like receiving multiple scholarships and learning both Arabic and French.
Quote Philip would like to leave you with:

“I don’t think there’s any experience as eye opening and rewarding.”— Amanda Hackney
Amanda Hackney studied abroad in Dublin and in this interview we’re going to find out exactly why.
As you will see in the show notes, Amanda’s trip did not get off to a very good start 😂. She actually missed a connecting flight at the start of her trip and as if that weren’t enough, she lost her luggage, too.
She bounced back in spades, though, and we hear exactly how in the interview.
During her trip (which she took during a spring semester) she got to explore Europe and make lifelong friends in the process. Now I know this sounds like cliché study abroad talk that you see posted on flyers all over your campus the signs, but it is so true, just listen!
Amanda might not know this, but I found her by typing “studying abroad in Dublin” in Google and a post from her time there was the number one hit…an impressive feet. If you’re thinking about Dublin, Ireland, or Europe in general you should definitely tune in and listen to someone who’s done it all before.
