I loved my time studying at Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence. It broadened my view of culture, society and made be become a fearless traveler. Ever since LdM, I have made a promise to myself that I would travel to another new place every year. Some of my favorite moments as a student there were experiencing the LdM fashion show and going off-campus with my travel writing class to local Italian markets. I took several literature courses at LdM that deepened my editorial perspective, which in turn helped me find my passion as a writer.
After LdM, I went on to work as a writer for beauty, fashion, lifestyle and home décor publications. My time at LdM writing and travelling off-campus for assignments gave me insight on how to research and gather content for my writing.

Studying abroad in Florence with LdM was a truly life changing experience. At LdM you have the opportunity to take a wide variety of classes which allowed me to stay on track academically at my home university while also having the opportunity to explore new interests such as Italian Cooking. The professors at LdM went out of their way to ensure students were grasping the material while also making the adjustment to life in a foreign country. Not only did LdM provide a high-caliber education, but the school offered many additional opportunities to fully immerse yourself in Italian culture. One of my favorite experiences was volunteering weekly at a local elementary school where I had the opportunity to teach English to 2nd graders. Studying abroad in Florence truly pushed me out of my comfort zone, helping me grow both personally and academically. I still look back on my experience daily and continue to leverage the skills I learned through my time in Florence with LdM!

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…
