Ciao, piacere! My name is Rosa, and I’m a 26-year-old native New Yorker who is currently living in Milan. Daughter of two Italian immigrants, my childhood was rich in Italian tradition and I was lucky enough to have spent my summers growing up in southern Italy.
I attended Saint John’s University in Queens, New York, where I double-majored in both Italian (surprise) and Communication Arts. After graduation, I worked professionally in different fields and capacities, and I even moved here for a year in 2016 to obtain a Master’s degree in International Cooperation and Development at l’Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.
Two years later, I am back in Milan (for now!), this time as an Italian citizen.
