What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience was the ability to dive into the culture of the area and live as if I was from that area. It gave me an opportunity to experience Florence and other cities as more of a local instead of as a tourist.

How did this experience impact you academically?

I was able to see the monuments, buildings, and architecture I was learning about in person. It helped me to remember the material more and be able to visualize history. With Florence's rich history and architecture, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

I can use this experience for my future goals because I would like to be involved in international politics or affairs. This study abroad opportunity allowed me to have hands-on experience in that field and take classes from international professors relating to international governing bodies.
