Reflection on My Time Abroad in Florence

My time studying in Florence, Italy, has been truly incredible, and I have seen and experienced so much, not only in Italy but in countries across Europe. I could not have hoped for or imagined a better semester. Although it is difficult to say in words all the things that I learned, I think it ...
