Giovanna Virgil, Saxophonist, Web Designer, Alum, Language Teacher

I moved to Italy from the United States to attend graduate school. This move allowed me to carry weight with myself. I formed the idea, and took all of the steps to follow through with it, encountering consistent obstacles along the way such as covid, learning a new language, learning a new culture, new food, new social expectations, and new financial obligations. I attended school, but also became a chef, lost relationships, gained relationships, learned to set boundaries and also failed at setting boundaries. All of this allowed me to gain confidence, and therefore weight with myself in my own life.
