Hi! My name is Sami Lucci, and I am currently a semester study abroad student at the American University of Rome, though I am officially enrolled at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Fla. I am a junior double-majoring in journalism and international studies, with a minor in history.
Hi! My name is Ayse Ozbay. I am a Film and Digital Media major with a Marketing minor at the American University of Rome. I was born and raised in Adana, a big city in the southern part of Turkey. Adana, a diverse city that can be modern and conservative at the same time, gave me my first glimpse at other cultures. In my American school, I got to meet people with different backgrounds – Spanish, Armenian, Syrian – at an early age. Growing up in a multicultural environment installed in me an appetite for other cultures. This, with my curious personality, made me eager to travel around the world and to try new things.
Hey everybody! It’s me, Caely Rose Hibbits. I was born in Connecticut, but moved to a tiny town, Cedar Key, FL, when I was two.

I am studying political science with a minor in international relations. I hope to work in public policy with a federal agency or a Congressman, or something. I am interesting in education, health care, clean energy, affordable housing, and pretty much anything that helps improve the lives of everyday people.
