My name is Kaitlin Kueny and I was born and raised in the lovely Omaha, Nebraska. I am entering my junior year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln majoring in biochemistry with minors in chemistry, math, and business. I hope to go into a career in the health field and for right now the plan is pharmacy school. I am studying abroad this summer in Rome, Italy and cannot wait to experience the treasures and culture Italy has to offer. I am excited for my classes (a change from the typical science courses), sightseeing, the food, and all of the wonderful people I will meet! I also look forward to being in Italy during the world cup and getting to experience the excitement with the locals while the games are on. I am looking forward to this once in a lifetime experience and how I will grow as a person!
