Who am I and where am I going?
My name is Anna McKane, and I will be spending my junior year (2017-2018) of High School in India!
This has been made possible by the Kennedy-Lugar YES Abroad scholarship and AFS, my scholarship's implementing organization!
I never thought I would become a part of something as amazing as this program, but here I am! I plan on keeping this blog as long as internet is available and I can find the time to write posts.

UPDATE: I will be living in or near New Delhi and going to Amity International School Gurgaon!
MY YEAR ABROAD
On March 13, 2017, I received an email that would change my life not only for the upcoming school year, but likely for the rest of my life. I learned that I will be going to study for my junior year of high school in India! As of now (April 4, 2017), I have no idea exactly where I will be placed, but I will update that in the future. Wherever I go, I have already been granted the opportunity of a lifetime, so I will make the most out of it.
