My name is Gabriella Grilli, but all of my friends (real and imaginary) call me Gigi. I’m senior English Major and Film Minor at Texas A&M University. So far, I can only speak Italian in the afternoon because in the morning my brain auto-corrects it to Spanish. Hopefully that will be fixed by the time I get home. Making films is my passion and I hope to one day be a director. My two greatest talents are that I can do a perfect cartwheel and I can tell different brands of soda apart just by smelling them.

I strive to show others all of what South Africa has to offer through my videos, in hopes of encouraging others to travel there as well.

Moira Millan
California Baptist University
San Jose, Costa Rica (ISA Service-Learning)
I love to travel, specifically, I love going back to my home country. I’ve been back to the Philippines a couple times, but I don’t remember much about it because I had few physical evidences to look back on. That’s why when I visited again in summer of 2017, I decided I’ll film every small moment, edit all the clips, and upload them so my family both in the Philippines and in the United States can remember what we did together. I plan to do the same during my time abroad and capture my adventures in Costa Rica.

Taylor Wright
University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Rome, Italy
Hi! I am a communication studies major, concentrating in public relations, and a journalism minor. My hobbies include: running, The Office (just finished it for the 5th time, definitely going to restart it soon), exploring new cities, meeting new people, music, being outside, food (making it a goal not to gain 500 pounds from all the pizza/pasta/gelato in Italy though), photography/videography, and dancing. I come from a small town in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina and attend college in a fast-paced, quickly-growing city. The thought of leaving my home state for a month without knowing a single soul kind of terrifies me, but I love being challenged so I’m taking a leap of faith and here I am! I’ll be studying abroad for four weeks in Italy, watch my video blogs to see what I’m up to!
