Future career aspirations: Further down my professional career, I want to work in an advertising agency that would allow me to travel and work digitally, specifically in content creation.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: 1. Learn how my identity as a minority exists in Italy, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important for me to overcome the stereotypes of American tourists and have difficult, but necessary, conversations about the increased fear of Asians since the outbreak.
2. Volunteer as an English tutor at one of the three local high schools Temple Rome is associated with.
3. Get experience with an advertising agency to learn about persuasion techniques used in Italian media and society.
