Why I chose to do this program: I chose this program because I have reached a point in my life where I need to be liberated; I need to recapture my voice and my love for learning; I need new people, new places, new smells, new tastes, and a new language; I need to hear some new stories and share a few of my own. I desire to spread my wings and set myself free. What else can I say? Italy is calling!
What I'm most excited about: Ah, such a cruel question to ask! How can I pick one thing? From the wine to the architecture, I want it all! I suppose one thing that I'm very eager to learn about is Italian politics and government!
Anything else? I think this about sums it up:
"I have been astonished that men die martyrs for their religion-
I have shuddered at the thought. I shudder no more.
I could be martyred for my religion.
Love is my religion."
