Overflowing with possibility, culture, and pride, Italy changed my life. This alteration began when I was only sixteen; sixteen, and clueless as to what was about to be revealed to me. The minute I stepped off the plane into Milan, I knew: Italy was beyond everything I had ever experienced, economically and internationally.
My trip to Italy was meaningful to me because it showed me a future and gave me hope. It showed me a future because I witnessed that innovation is possible with determination. It showed me hope because I saw a part of history that would never fade. For this, I will forever be in Italy’s debt.
