Fall 16 Ambassador
I currently study at Hamilton College in Central New York, where I am an aspiring linguistic anthropologist and middle-school teacher. In my free time I enjoy discussing literature and sociolinguistic issues, playing my banjo-ukulele, and rock climbing. I decided to study abroad in Italy in order to reconnect with my Italian heritage, and I selected Perugia because of its intimate, authentic representation of central Italian culture. Right from the start, the Umbra staff fostered a nurturing, supportive, and welcoming environment and helped me develop a meaningful connection to this small, quirky Medieval city.
