Former NC Magnet Warrior, Nicola Wynn continues to live out her dream of traveling and teaching. A few of her destinations include Ko Phan Gan, Thailand (Middle picture) and Ring of Kerry, Ireland (Top picture). Wynn graduated from the NC International Studies program (Bottom picture), and credits much of her journey to it. “The NC Magnet program was very helpful in preparing me for my non traditional career path. I have to be very disciplined with my schedule since there's no one holding me to deadlines. Working for yourself is great, but you have to be organized and motivated to do the work,” Wynn said.

Overlooking the Sydney Harbor from the famed Sydney Harbor bridge, the group enjoyed the ships passing by and the view of the Opera House and downtown area. After a half-day hike around the city and across the bridge, the group huddled to view the city from the center of the 3,700 footbridge. “It was interesting to see the Opera house and bridge and all the parks but Australia felt like a normal big city. It wasn't very different than one you'd see in the United States,” Magnet senior Steven Tran said.
