Alessia recently moved into an apartment in town with her mom and kitten. Before that, she lived in a large farmhouse with her Grandparents, Mom, Aunt and 2 German Shepherds! Her Grandfather is a farmer and her Mom and Aunt work for the family business. Alessia describes herself as generous, curious and as someone who likes to try new things. "I am a very sunny person." Alessia loves seeing new places and studying languages. She chose United States as her exchange year because of its beautiful landscape and prestigious high schools. But also, Alessia is determined to improve her English. Alessia has tried activities such as swimming and horseback riding, but dance is something she has done for 7 years, and even though she stopped dancing to try new things, she would like to begin again soon. Alessia spends winter break skiing, but prefers the seaside because she finds the sea to be calming. Alessia helps around the house with chores and, of course, is looking forward to cooking some Italian dishes and sharing memorable moments together with her American host family!
