Hometown: Newport, Rhode Island
Favorite place and why: My favorite place would have to be Florence, Italy after living and studying there for 4 months. The endless amounts of places to see and visit, combined with its lively atmosphere and rich history, made the whole experience feel surreal. It has left me with so many great memories and given me close friends that I am still in contact with today.
Source of Pride: My large extended family that is spread out throughout the country. It has given me the opportunity to live in, travel to, and experience a variety of places that all hold their own unique character and hidden gems. It inspires me to continue traveling while at the same time inspires me to keep my family close.
Favorite piece of art/music/writing: Castles Made of Sand – Jimi Hendrix
Favorite RI oddity: Coffee milk
