Ciao! My name is Jacob Sklar. I am a junior at Temple University, studying Communication and Social Influence. I am passionate about environmentalism, social justice, design, food, music, architecture, and all things pop culture. During my stay in Rome, I am thrilled to be able to taste some of the best food in the world and discover all the unique aspects of Roman culture! I write from the perspective of a student abroad, away from home for the first time, experiencing culture shock – in the best way!
