Meet Aria – Spring 2018 Blogger

Bonjour! (I’m far from fluent in French, but give me some credit for trying)

I’m Aria Amthor, a second-year Mechanical Engineering student at Georgia Tech. I currently work at the Georgia Aquarium and play with a robotic leg in Tech’s EPIC lab, but I’m throwing that all out the window for a bit to go to France. I’ve never been on a plane alone before or outside the US and Canada, so this whole Europe thing will be a wonderful experiment in seeing how well my process of “make a plan, then forget it all and do that cool thing over there” works out without the comforts of home. Stay tuned in for updates on seeking friends, fun, an adequate GPA, and bread. Lots and lots of bread.
