Ever since I was little reading and learning about Roman and Greek mythology, I knew that I wanted to go to Italy. And in high school I was fortunate enough to be able to do just that. But when I found out that I had the opportunity to actually live there I knew I had to go. I am in love with Urbino, with its gelato, falafels, chicken and fries, the views by the Raffaello statue, the crescia- shoutout La Baciocca, underground, becoming friends with some of the translators and especially its people who make me smile every day. It is an experience that I will hold on to for the rest of my life. I have learned so much and I am forever thankful to have been given the chance to go here.
