From Student Blogger, Nand: Me and my Italian roommate

In our effort to bring good content to as many people as possible the text in this blog post has been machine translated so please excuse any mistakes. Thank you!

One of the best decisions I have made in the US, is to share a room with another international student from Italy. His name is Simone Ferrari -- Yes, FERRARI !! His cool last name is one of the things I considered before living with him. We learn about each other’s cultures, share food, make fun of our professors, study, plan our career and make memories together. I give this advice to all the students who ask me about finding housing in the US; please live with a person from another country, you have no idea how much that student has to offer you.

When we say that “America is the land of opportunities”, it’s not fully true. I would rephrase that as “America is the land of opportunities if you keep your eyes open.” For example, the opportunity to learn from a person of different background is easily unseen; if the first thing you do to find accommodation is look for a student from your home country.

In this video, I am sharing my experience with my roommate and some funny moments we spent together.
