New York has given me more fashion opportunities than I could have ever imagined, but I could not help but wonder about what else is out there. Of course, I am a frequent flyer, traveler, explorer, whatever you name it, but in my 20th year I was longing for a more in depth experience to better my education, life experiences, and of course, stickers on a map. In a few short months I will be heading to Florence, Italy to spend my junior year of college abroad, and I have some reasons why you should to.
I know it is hard to speak about an experience before even getting on the plane. This is not a list of places I have been, things I have seen, or friends that I made. That is or the future. Leading up to Florence, I can only explain the drive and passion that led me to make the decision to move, and hope that every single college student can relate. Fashion is something that has stuck with me my entire life. I am proud to say I think, speak, sleep, and everything else you can think of, fashion. New York has paved an amazing career path and professional network for me, but I am more than excited to learn the history, artistry, and craftsmanship that Italy and the rest of Europe contains.
Besides professional reasons, travel has always been my main life long goal. I always used to say that one of the things that matters most in the end is the places that you have been, and I still believe this wholeheartedly. I want to explore every crevice that this world has to offer and show others that there is truly no feeling that can duplicate it.
You are probably wondering what this has to do with anyone else. That is where the most important part of journey comes into play. I am working with WSA Europe to make the world within reach for college students abroad. “Weekend Student Adventures” is a travel company for college age students to make traveling experiences happen on a budget. The tours have friendly (and don’t forget fun) tour guides that show you the parts of a destination that WE actually care about. Memories of a lifetime can be made without breaking your wallet. I am looking forward to traveling with WSA during my year abroad to make my time in Europe an unforgettable experience.
