LdM ALUMNI OF THE MONTH

I went abroad because I wanted a new adventure; I wanted to see what life was like on other parts of the world. Florence not only became my home for 4 months, but it left me with lasting memories that helped create who I am as a person.
Looking back on the semester, I remember sitting in orientation on the first day and someone was talking about how you should “Do one thing a day that is outside of your comfort zone”. When I heard this, I kind of chuckled and thought yeah right, that’s impossible, but as I begun the week I realized that I was doing multiple things a day that was outside of my comfort zone, which I would have never done if I had been back home where I was comfortable. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and try new things that I had never done before. It taught me that whenever you are faced with a problem, you have to face it head on and find a way to solve it. Everything will not always go your way, but by facing new and challenging situations, you grow as a person.

I learned so much about Italy, I learned even more about myself. I always knew I was independent, but studying in Florence only made that stronger. I became my own person and understood myself more than ever. Being a psychology major, it is crucial to have a worldly perspective. Meeting so many beautiful and nuanced people from different countries expanded my understanding of humanity and made me want to pursue my career on a global level. I owe LdM so much for this incredible and life-changing experience.

Andrea’s semester abroad in Florence with LdM really came in handy, when she was hired to work with a Chilean architecture firm to reconstruct a submission for this year’s Venice Biennale.

Language skills and familiarity with Italy benefitted Andrea when she returned to Italy to create Pedro’s Lookout, a famous Lookout that was originally built in Chile. Read more…
