“I moved from a small town in Maine to the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland for university. At first, it was a bit of culture shock as the region was very heavily influenced by both Swiss and Italian cultures — it has its own unique Ticinese culture.”

“I had to learn Italian since very few people knew English there. My diet changed drastically, and I was thrown into a new world. It was the best decision of my life!

I speak two more languages than I used to, made friends around the world, and learned who am I and what I want in this life.
