Lopez, Amber

Tell us why you chose to study abroad.
I chose to study abroad because I want to get the chance to discover the culture of Italy and all of Europe. I have never been to Europe before, so I want to take every opportunity to learn about the history and culture of every country and city I go to.

Tell us about your school, major, interests, clubs (you in a nutshell).
I am a Senior majoring in Business Management at Pace University (New York, NY). In high school, I knew I wanted a career in business, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My first fashion internship was at Jules Smith, and I absolutely loved it! That internship opened my eyes to the fashion industry, and I realized I wanted a career in the fashion industry but on the business side. During my spare time, I love going on Tumblr! I reblog almost anything that deals with fashion! I am also helping out my younger sister with her pastry business, which I am really excited about!

What are you most excited about re. studying abroad?
I would have to say I am most excited about the fashion, history, and food! Of course, meeting new people too!

What are you most nervous about re. studying abroad?
I am most nervous about being homesick. This is the first time I am going to be away from my family for a few months, but I know they would want me to do this and not let anything hold me back from going.

What are three goals that you would like to achieve/accomplish while abroad?
I would like to fluently learn Italian, make one friend every city and country I go to, and hopefully, make the dean’s list.
