Hi everyone I'm Molly. This is my second year in U.S. and I fell in love with America the second I got here. Mainly because everyone is so nice and welcoming. The culture is very inclusive. All these makes life here full of surprises and happiness. To get to know American college life, I started taking part in FIUTS events and activities ever since the school began. It's a lovely place to meet new friends from all over the world, so I decided to stay and intern at FIUTS office. If you are interested in knowing some activities you can take part in or need any help about college life, come to FIUTS office and I'll tell you all about it.
