  • Global Ambassador

You wouldn't think the Paddington Bear statue in Paddington Station, London is hard to find. But Jenny will tell you otherwise. She can tell you a lot of things about southern England you might not know, ever since she went to the U.K. on an AU study abroad for literature studies!

Apart from working with the Center for Writing Excellence and Sand Hills Magazine, Jackson spends his days working with the Study Abroad Office and searching for free food around campus. He loved getting to watch a Shakespeare play in the actual Globe Theatre in London, England. And, of course, getting pizza after.
