First Chile interview...on the board; thanks to Rachel! She's also are first finance major, too, so she's really checking off all the boxes. And honestly, in this interview this interview was pretty much cruise control. Rachel remembered her trip vividly, like she just got off the plane.

The Butler University alumnus is the current Study Abroadcast champion as far as length of time goes. I wish they were all this long.

Thanks, Rachel!

It's a great interview, too:

  • Chile turns into South America
  • South America turns into earthquakes
  • Earthquakes turn into food
  • Next we're talking about entering the workforce
  • And finally she talks about her return trip to the exquisite continent
