Q&A with Anna:

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

I would love to live in Budapest, Hungary. It was such a beautiful city with a deep, emotional history, but it’s also so full of life. Everyone I met there was so kind and helpful. The selection of food was incredible, and it seems like there is always something to do.

What is something that nobody knows about you?

Growing up, I sang competitively.

What made you want to study abroad?

As a history major, I was very drawn to learning about ancient Rome while standing in the ruins that we would be discussing. The hands on experience that I am able to get here is incredibly unique. I also think it’s important to travel and experience new cultures whenever possible.

What is your favorite spot in Rome (place to study, eat, site-see, etc.)?

La Tavernetta 29 da Tony e Andrea is my favorite restaurant. The chicken parm there is amazing!

What is the coolest thing that you’ve done so far while abroad?

Swimming through caves and jumping from cliffs into the Mediterranean Sea in Malta was the coolest thing I’ve done.

What do you like most about your classes at Temple University Rome?

Having professors who aren’t from the United States or have been living abroad for years has been really rewarding! I’m enjoying getting a different perspective from people who call Europe home. The teaching style is definitely different, but the challenge is refreshing.

What do you hope to get out of this experience and how will it help you with your professional goals?

Through this experience, I have become more empathetic by meeting people from all different backgrounds. As a future attorney, I want to be able to understand what people are dealing with so I can help them better. Learning about other cultures and experiences is very humbling.

What advice would you give to students thinking about attending Temple University Rome in the future?

Try to experience something new everyday. My time is flying by, and I want to get as much out of it as possible. Even if it’s just going on a walk to explore, don’t waste a day here!
