This semester, I continued to be a part of the OU cousins program, with my cousin, Nelly. Getting to know Nelly better this semester has been so much fun, because the more time I have spent with her, the more I’ve come to know how similar we are. Our lives may have taken very different paths, but there are certain things that seem to be universal. One of my favorite memories this semester has been our weekly trips to Baked Bear (the ice cream here is better, apparently). Nelly is going home for the summer, but has said that she will miss our adventures from this year. OU cousins is such a unique organization because it can be whatever you want it to be. For me, it’s been gaining a really cool friend and a new perspective on France, and maybe the world. 10/10, will do again.
