Coronavirus and Lessons Learned 03/20/20

Coronavirus – it’s a hot topic these days and reasonably so. Hardly anybody knew what it was or that it even existed just a few weeks ago. Then it started to spread to South Korea, Japan, and of course Italy.  And of all semesters, of all years, of all countries, I decided to study abroad […]

From mountains to beaches, Italy offers so many breathtaking sights to see! I had the amazing opportunity to spend my first day of March 2020 in Catania, Sicily.

Mountains and Money 02/21/20

I never get tired of the breathtaking mountain view. Every morning, when I open my curtains, I take in the landscape, and every single time, it still amazes me. This past weekend, I decided to wander aimlessly throughout the nearby cities, and no words can convey the level of serenity and content I felt during […]

Three weeks into my time in Italy and there’s already so much to talk about! But first, I’d like to give an update on a few of the goals I mentioned in my previous blog. One of my personal goals had been to appreciate the outdoors more often and I must say, in Italy that […]

Settling In! 01/30/20

My first two weeks in Italy have been a whirlwind.  My first few days of classes went by quickly and soon it was time for LIFE.  I have gone through various leadership and development programs before, and I expected LIFE to be similar except with more technology and monitoring involved.  I have never been more […]

Expectations, Adaptations and 2 Weeks in the Books! 01/29/20

Anticipating moving to Paderno came with many preconceived notions about what I was getting myself into. Nothing screams discomfort like moving to a foreign country with a bunch of strangers.

Setting Goals, Chasing Opportunities 01/09/20

As a loyal and dedicated introvert, I grew up with either my nose buried in a book or a pen in my hand. And yes, I mean pen not keyboard. I’m old fashioned like that sometimes, but don’t get me wrong, my laptop is third only to my family and my phone. Now to introduce […]
