Photograph of Natalia Natalia is in her second year of studies in political science and history. She is blogging from the University of Nottingham, England, where she is a Study Abroad student. Her academic interests revolve around international relations, early modern English history, as well as monarchies and historical battles; hence she is thrilled to live in and explore a country so rich in history. Born in Chile, Natalia grew up in Hamilton, Ont., where she got involved in provincial politics and developed an interest in volunteering. Looking beyond her exchange, Natalia intends to attend law school after graduating from the University of Toronto.
