“Live life with no excuses, travel with no regret” ~ Oscar Wilde
Marina Schipani is a Senior at Florida State University, earning a dual degree in English – Editing, Writing, and Media and Theatre, as well as a minor in Film Studies. She’s 21 years old and was born and raised in South Florida. She is the youngest of five and takes great pride in her loving family. She enjoys reading fiction novels, watching period pieces, and discovering new vegan recipes. When she’s not planning her next great adventure, she’s spending time with her sassy, senior cat, Moo Moo.
After a missed opportunity to study abroad, she was reminded of the important lesson that everything happens for a reason. She’s an optimist! She is now more excited than ever to embark to London during her study abroad semester in Spring of 2019. She hopes that her experiences abroad will expose her to new people and places whose stories will inspire her to create diverse and inclusive art. Furthermore, Marina is humbled to be a member of the Dreams Abroad team. She is especially looking forward to sharing all of her tips and tricks for planning (and re-planning) experiences overseas. Cheers!
