I view life completely differently since my time abroad. [Visiting] Italy motivated me to work harder and learn my own language (Spanish) and learn Italian as well. Since my trip, I have been researching art residencies and organizations daily, taking Spanish lessons outside my university courses, and contacting art organizations for jobs and exhibition opportunities.
