Deciding to come to Florence with the UConn Fine Arts program was the best decision I have ever made. This unfamiliar culture and way of living has opened my eyes to an entirely new side of me that I am ready to explore. Thus far, this life changing experience has been a great deal of fun and has had enormous opportunities for learning. Classes here are hands on and extremely enriching. I am meeting people everyday and traveling Europe with good friends, life is good.
When coming to Florence I could not even fathom at the time the world I would step into. After the initial shock, there was a period of getting used to what my surroundings are and what they would provide in the future. Being thrown into a culture that differs so much from everything you know has its pros and cons. The learning experiences have its ups and downs but in the end you really can see the difference in yourself from what you have learned. So far it has been a positive difference and one that I will be able to remember for a long time.
