It's difficult to name just one, but a few of my "go to" places are Green Lake and Gasworks Park. They are some of the coolest parks in Seattle, where I mostly go for a stroll or to run. Alki Beach and Kerry Park are two other places that I like to visit, especially when its bright and sunny because you can get great views of Mount Rainier!

Studied a master's degree at Northeastern University in Seattle

I wanted to study abroad in Seattle because of its really strong aerospace industry – Boeing is here, as well as a lot of related industries. Seattle also offers a good quality of life, as it has a really relaxed environment. There are plenty of opportunities to be active.
