Why do you want to serve as an International Ambassador at Santa Clara University?
I wanted to go to Europe because it is such an amazing place and I studied Italian my freshman year so Rome seemed perfect.
It took a while to finally feel comfortable in my new space. After weeks abroad and getting to know myself in a different country, I finally had that moment. When I took a weekend trip to Paris and I walked through the busy streets, I finally realized where I was. Yes I am a college student but I was learning about so many new cultures, languages, history, everything you can imagine. Seeing all the people around me, I finally realized that this was a great experience that I want to do again in life. From there on, I went back to Rome and studied everything around me and took in everything possible. It took a while but I got to the point where I didn't want to go home anymore, I just wanted to learn.
