Katie OOConnor studies English and Italian at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. She is spending her junior year abroad taking language classes at Centro Linguistico Italiano Dante Alighieri (CLIDA) while completing course work at the Universitt degli Studi di Firenze. She loves living in Florence.
