Hi! My name is Ilyssa Mann and I studied abroad in Florence, Italy. Cooking and baking has always been a passion of mine, and so it seemed like a no-brainer to study abroad in THE country known for its food. I took a travel course and a cooking course at Florence University of the Arts. In addition, I took an advertising and social media class, but the travel and cooking courses were my favorites. My study abroad experience really pushed me outside of my comfort zone, as I went all alone on a Non-UF program. However, I would not change anything about my experience as my roommates ended up being some of the coolest people I’ve ever met from all over the United States. After such a great experience, I am looking to study abroad again in the future! Please feel free to come speak with me during my office hours to learn more about study abroad in general and all the amazing opportunities out there.
