Hi! My name is Jahiem Hill, I’m currently a senior finishing up my degree in Biochemistry. I am from Jackson Springs, NC. I am apart of Gamma Psi Sigma and ECU Research.

My best advice to anyone studying abroad is to leave your comfort zone and immerse yourself in the culture. Also, budget money to travel to other countries.
