Ciao! My name is Mia Jurkunas and I am a junior at Connecticut College. Wow! I never thought that I would find myself in such a beautiful place getting to do the thing I love most, with such an amazing and dedicated group of people. This week we are preparing a Kabaret for the faculty and each other. I will be performing a movement piece that I have devised and singing a duet written about our very own Monica Capacci (faculty coordinator). It is so inspiring to watch your fellow peers show off their hard work and talent. At home, my artistic environment is very lax, so being in such a thriving and fulfilling atmosphere where everyone is dedicated to their artistry is incredibly rewarding. I have learned so much about myself and the world and can not wait to keep expanding my knowledge in this beautiful villa in Italy.
