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.
