My name is Michelle Laker and I am a senior at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA. I will be studying in Rome for two reasons. One, I have been taking Italian for the past 4 semesters and hope to become fluent. Two, my senior research project is studying communication, hospitality, and wine! What better place to incorporate a field study of all these?? To keep up with my experience follow my insta @miiiiich_l A fun little fact about me is that I have eaten a grasshopper taco and actually enjoyed it!
