Photos from Exchange: Italy

Hello everyone! This month has been super hectic. I just finished a week with three assignments, and I leave for New York City (AAAHHH) in four days.

Yesterday, I realized that I've learned more about independence through apps and email newsletter than I did in fourteen years [...]

The Exchange Tag
