This program taught me that its important to pack light! I traveled pretty light for the length of my program but there were some things i never touched. Its tricky getting luggage on public transportation in general and especially in foreign countries.

There was a constant wide variety of interactions with people which is the most rewarding thing because that's what social work is focused on: interacting with people and exploring being human together.

My favorite part of studying abroad in Italy was having the opportunity to interact and build friendships with locals.
