Kyle Donovan

University of Western Australia Exchange


Hey!!! I'm Kyle and I'm a junior Food Science major, possibly a Chemistry minor??? and in the Commonwealth Honors College(for now…). I was abroad at the University of Western Australia in the sunniest ‘capital city’ in the world, Perth. 

I got to spend so much time outside soaking in the beautiful weather with some of the most amazing and fun people I’ve ever met. I experienced so many great moments from formal balls to scuba diving to playing footy. At the end of the day the best moments were those beach days after class that involved body surfing waves, playing beach soccer, tanning, and DIGGING HOLES!!! It just felt like I was a kid again and aside from some school I didn’t have to worry too much about being a real adult. 

That being said, my advice is quite simple: let looooossee. It’s totally normal to be nervous, but it’s all going to work out. Have faith in yourself!!! Try something new!!! Have a great time!!!
