I was born and raised in England, and my family is Italian, English, German and Tunisian, so I have had my fair share of traveling and exposure to a variety of cultures. My gap year after high school was a real turning point for me. I spent the first four months working at several full-time desk jobs (for a private equity firm, for Reuters, for Tatler magazine, in the emergency room of a Berlin hospital), and spent the remainder of the year exploring Peru, New Zealand, Germany and France extensively. It served as the perfect introduction to Global Liberal Studies. I spent my GLS freshman year immersed in the culture of Paris and I loved how the city's resources became bonus material for my studies in the classroom. My sophomore year in New York brought many new exciting, experiences and opportunities, including a passion for street art and the opportunity to participate in a training program at Donna Karan alongside my studies. My GLS Experiential Learning project during my junior year in Paris was unforgettable as it involved launching (with co-founders) my own fashion/travel magazine SUITCASE; which is now sold worldwide and brings curated travel and global fashion to its readers through print, online, tablet, and a series of pop-up shops and events.
