Ciao! Hello! My name is Marissa Fish and I will be spending my junior year abroad in Italy! I am currently a sophomore at Centennial High School in Atlanta, Georgia. During the past four years, I have taken Spanish, which I hope will help me to learn Italian. In addition to academics, I actively participate in my school’s Interact Club, and am also the starting goal keeper on the JV soccer team. When I am not studying or at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether it is simply taking pictures together or just hanging out. I love socializing and enjoy meeting new people, something that I know I will have the opportunity to do while studying abroad! I also really enjoy playing soccer, and have been playing ever since I was five years old. At home, I live with my mom, dad, and adorable dog Zeke! I also have an older brother who is a junior at the University of Georgia. Among other things, I am passionate about traveling, and have been focused on the idea of living in another country since I first traveled outside of the United States at the age of eight. Not only do I love exploring, but I also enjoy learning about new cultures; I am beyond excited and grateful to immerse myself in the Italian culture! I also look forward to exploring Italy’s amazing history. Besides exploring, I am eager to learn more about myself, and to give back to my community. I am honored to be chosen as an exchange student, and can’t wait to see where this journey takes me!
