Hi there! My name is Rebecca Widmer and I am 17 years old. I am looking forward to spending the summer of 2018 abroad in Italy & I could really use your help! As some of you may know my first experience hosting an exchange student came last year when we invited Chiara from Italy into our home. She taught me so many new things and inspired me to study abroad on my own. I hope to increase my understanding of Italian culture and really immerse myself in the language while abroad. I will be attending a community college in the fall semester to finish prerequisites before transfering to a 4yr college. I have a part-time job and have money put away for this trip. I appreciate all of the help and support i've been getting , Thank You!
