My name is Mariel Rae Rothman and I am a junior at University of Maryland, College Park. I am a communications major and an entrepreneurship and technology minor. I am from Cherry Hill, NJ (right outside of Philadelphia, PA).
I am the happiest when I am exploring new cities and trying new restaurants. I also adore my Coton De Tulear dog named Sophie and, while I am studying abroad, I think I miss her the most out of anything at home in America!
On my free time, I enjoy playing around with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, making short movies on imovie, cooking and traveling with my friends and family.
I am super excited to be spending my spring 2013 semester at American University of Rome and I especially look forward to blogging for this Media, Art, and Social Activism class.
