Hi, my name is Nick and I am going into my Senior year at Curry College as a Communication major with a minor in Psychology. Studying abroad this past Spring was the best decision, as it not only taught me independence, but truly culturized my understanding of the world. I met many great people along the way, and learned things about myself that I would have never learned otherwise. Along with spending a great deal of my time in Rome, I was able to travel to 12 countries, and visit 24 cities. Outside of Rome, Ireland was my favorite, as the views and culture there are truly something you can only understand when you experience it. Living in Rome however, my favorite part was living by the vatican, and being a short walk away from the Colosseum and other breathtaking views. The food was phenomenal, and the people were incredible. They truly made you feel like Rome was your home now too. All of this was made possible by AIFS, and choosing them was a no brainer. They are well organized and give a great balance of help, but also freedom. I hope that as an AIFS Alumni Ambassador, I can encourage people to step out of their comfort zone and go after their goals, because it will be the best decision they make!
