What class are you most looking forward to taking while studying abroad?
I'm very excited to be taking both "Contemporary Italian Cinema" and "Food, Culture, & Lifestyle Under the Tuscan Sky." Both of these classes will allow me to be immersed in Florentine culture while still getting credit for my majors back home. I look forward to all that I'll take away from these courses! Plus, I'll get to expand my palate (for both films and food!).
What is one new experience you're hoping to have while studying abroad?
I hope that I'll ride so many trains while I'm studying abroad in Florence! I'm a huge fan of them and can't wait to travel by train in Europe.
What is something you're passionate and excited about? (Hobbies, interests, causes, etc.)
I love taking photos, watching movies, reading thrillers and romance novels, and seeing trains/building model railroads. I'm excited to do all of things when I'm in Florence! I can't wait to seek out local theaters and watch films in new countries.
why did you choose to study or intern abroad? And why did you choose your destination?
I chose to Florence study abroad because I think I'll push myself to grow more, try new things, and experience the rich culture that Florence offers. Studying abroad in Italy will allow me to be very independent while getting to explore places I couldn't otherwise.
