I’ve always been someone who craves adventure and change yet is absolutely terrified of it when it happens, or so I thought. When I first arrived at the Accademia, I felt this overwhelming sense of fear. Fear of the unknown; not knowing what to expect during my time here. Currently writing this during week four, I can confidently say I have found my footing and am constantly falling more in love with Italy. Whether it be my classes at the Accademia, the town of Arezzo, or even tiramisu (which I never liked before). This adventure has already had a huge impact on my life and will forever be a piece of me. I’m so grateful to be able to have this experience of studying abroad in a country I only dreamed of visiting, never mind living in for three months.
