People say you grow the most when you are uncomfortable and I have definitely found that to be true throughout my time studying abroad in Italy. Spending time in a new country with people I've never met, in a different and non-English speaking culture has really pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I have grown in so many unimaginable ways. From struggling to get past language barriers, running after trains, searching for the best crema caffè in the country, and eating at least one cone of gelato a day, I've had so many experiences and made memories that will last a lifetime. I have fallen in love with the city of Urbino and its friendly people, amazing food, and beautiful views. I am so grateful for this opportunity to learn about myself, improve my journalism skills, and discover the culture and history of Italy.
