il primo


Ciao! My name is Christina and I’m 26 years old. Though born and raised in Jersey, I’m currently living and volunteering in Northern Italy. I graduated with my Master’s in May, quit my job in July, and moved here to learn, help, love, and, of course, attempt to fill the bottomless pit that is my sense of wanderlust. My ultimate dream is to work in geriatrics – I am applying to doctoral programs and would love to eventually help individuals with neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This blog is meant to organize my experiences and research, and to share what I’m learning in relation to caregiving, neurology, and travel. 🙂

  1. Hi Christina

    I just read your incredible blog… I took my time and went back and read certain parts so I could fully absorb everything you shared… I admire you as a young woman and respect all you stand for and are striving to be. I have never known anyone with so much intense passion and self motivation… You are fully living your life and impacting others along the way… There aren’t any words to express all I want to say…
    Rod and I are looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks. I knew from the first time I met you that you are a unique and very special person.
    Thanks for writing so that others can live through all you have experience and learned… You are making a difference. I feel honored to know you. Hugs… Connie
