Despite having German and Italian roots, I was born in the USA. This began my formal education in English, a pattern that has remained up until this day. I have also lived in the Czech Republic and Germany before I began studies at Lancaster University. My interests include sustainability, ecosystem preservation, fitness, volleyball, sales as well as interacting and helping people wherever possible. My intrigue for LUIFS was only truly sparked within the last year, however now it is not set to falter.
