The First One

Well, here I am blogging for the first time...and I'm 21!  I figured that if I'm going halfway around the world I had better figure out some way to share it with anyone and everyone who might give a hoot as to what I am up to...or someone who just happens to stumble onto my site by accident!  My name is Britta, Britta Leigh Peterson to be precise.  I am a random french- speaking American who lives life to its fullest, loves Jesus passionately, and I am also a self-proclaimed "stinker"(meaning I consistently create and participate in acts of mischief whenever and wherever possible!)  I love singing my lungs out and anything else music-related, soccer, futbal actually, and my wonderful crazy family of 7 people...Oh, and my boyfriend, who is one of the most caring individuals I have ever met, and probably ever will meet.  I am a senior at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN majoring in Global Studies and, you guessed it, French along with a minor in Communication basically, I want to graduate and go on to change the world-- and by golly, I'm gunna do it too!  I will be leaving for India to spend a semester there this coming fall semester of 2009 and will be leaving August 29th as of current flight plans(I'll return around the 21st of December if I'm able to visit my sister in Mozambique).  That means that I am desperately working to earn enough money to fund this adventure and mentally prepare myself by reading and talking to culturally wise peeps.  I will be updating you on my preparations and the actual adventure as things happen...and they will happen...stay tuned to Adventures With Britta Leigh and join the fun!
