I wished to join the Culture and Identity Envoy program because I believe exploring how identity interacts with the world is an important aspect of promoting social justice.  My coursework as a Peace and Conflict Studies and Italian Cultural Studies double major has prepared me with the skills to explore the diverse communities and cultures of Rome. In addition to my interests and skills, I wish to bring a unique perspective to the program due to various facets of my identity that have influenced who I am today. I am also a deeply analytical and compassionate person, always trying to find common ground with anyone I meet. The Cultural and Identity Envoy Program would align perfectly with my areas of interest in my coursework and my personal values.

Major: Italian, Peace and Conflict Studies
