Just enjoy every moment, even when you're exhausted.

Michaela Paige Cohen, Summer 2013 Participant
My favorite part of the program was being able to be completely immersed in true Italian culture. I had visited Italy twice before, but I had never experienced it with people who had lived in Italy their whole lives. It was amazing to interact daily and so closely with my host family and my students. It opened a lot of discussion about the similarities and differences between American culture and Italian culture--not necessarily which was better or worse, but just an open discussion about cultural differences as well as the aspects of life that seem to be universal. Through learning a lot about the way my family and students functioned in society, I believe I came away from the program knowing a lot more about human nature than I previously had.

The teaching in a cultural diverse classroom really challenged me to be aware of aspects I was never aware of before.
