Amanda in Siena

I am 19 years old and am a sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin. I am working towards an anthropology degree because I am fascinated in all the different cultures, religions, and languages around the world. My hobbies include sewing, reading, hiking, camping, and traveling. Every summer I go backpacking with my family. Our most recent trip was to Rocky Mountain National Park. I am very excited to study abroad in Siena, Italy so I can practice my Italian and become immersed in a new culture.

Term: Spring 2019

Favorite thing about going abroad?

I am most excited to learn about the minute differences that happen from culture to culture. For example, my Italian professor just taught me that in Northern Italy it is polite to be five minutes late; you should not be on time.
