My Experience Studying Abroad in Italy

by Grace Sattem, ICCC Study Abroad Scholarship Recipient

Growing up, my family has always been innamorato with Italy. My grandfather had a particular knack for Italian cinema, literature, and art, and he inspired my mother and cousins to study abroad there in college. This then became a tradition amongst the women in my family, for we were all obsessed with the idea of traveling to Italy. Growing up watching classics such as Cinema Paradiso or La vita è bella and listening to Domenico Modugno’s “Volare,” I too obtained a fascination with Italian culture and a desire to experience it for myself. This passion carried throughout my adolescence, and especially saw itself through once I attended Rice University. Immediately, I enrolled myself into the Introductory Italian Language course, knowing that I could begin the process of fulfilling my dream. So during this past summer, with two semesters of Italian under my belt, and help from the wonderful language program faculty at Rice, I was able to enroll in a Language and Cultural Immersion program in Rome…

My wonderful experience wouldn’t have been made possible without the generosity of the Houston ICCC; grazie mille.
