“When I first applied to study abroad in Arezzo, I did not imagine I would make such amazing memories and create lifelong relationships. The Monastery quickly became my little home, and Fabio’s food wad the one thing I looked forward to every single day.
I had the opportunity of interning with Oxfam, where I met phenomenal people who taught me so much about the Italian culture and way of life. The best part was definitely the food and traveling around Italy and Europe - an experience of a lifetime to say the least. It has almost been two years since this journey, and I still think about it everyday.”
