Introducing Michelle, Abroad101 Global Ambassador in Florence, Spring 2012!


Abroad101 is pleased to introduce Michelle Farhang, one of our Global Ambassadors for this Spring semester! Michelle will be spending the semester in Florence, Italy taking courses to fullfil her Art minor. She will be contributing to our blog so we can track her adventure. We’re looking forward to hearing about all the amazing art and food in Italy!

Michelle is a Junior at Chapman University in Orange County, California. She is a Peace Studies Major and is pursuing two minors in Broadcast Journalism and Art. Photography is her medium of choice, we’ll reap the benefit of her skills as she takes stunning pictures around Italy this Spring!

This will be Michelle’s first international journey! She enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and New York, and is “thrilled to finally get to see the world and spend Spring in Europe!” She’s looking forward to learning about Italian culture and experiencing life outside the United States.


Outside of her studies, Michelle loves yoga, snowboarding and photography.

In her own words:

“Abroad101 is so awesome because it is a place where students who are planning or considering going abroad can go and hear stores and answers to everything they are worried or curious about!”
