Natali Heater spent 4 weeks abroad in Dublin, Ireland studying child psychology as a Vira I. Heinz scholarship recipient. This class covered the mental illnesses a child can develop as well as the relationships between the child and their environment or family. This course was important for Natali’s future criminology degree. She found that children in Ireland are much less supervised and generally have fewer developmental disorders than children in the States because of the different environmental challenges both sets of children face. When she wasn’t in class, Natali liked to walk through Dublin and went on trips to Galway, the Aran Islands, Dun Laoghaire, and Glendalough. One of the most exciting things she did was going to the Cliffs of Moher, where she climbed the rebuilt fort originally built in the 1st century named O’Brien’s Tower, which helped name the cliffs “Mothar” in Gaelic means “ruined fort.” The entire experience helped Natali step out of her comfort zone and she is excited to encourage other students to have their own study abroad experiences as Vira I. Heinz cohorts.
