Hi! My name is Emma (she/her) and I studied abroad last summer (Summer 2022) on the UF in Florence - Global Perspectives program. While in Florence, I learned more about the Italian language, and about horticulture! My classes abroad may not have been major related, but they taught me so much I would never have learned at UF. I also did the one week optional cultural introduction to the program, where we traveled north from Rome up the coast. By doing this course, I got to explore parts of Italy I had no idea existed, and I met my best friends that I would spend 6 more weeks with. If I could do it all again, I would.
