Q&A with a #UWSOAR Intern – Lucia Vitale

Lucia Vitale is a junior from Woodbury, Minnesota studying Italian and International Studies. Rarely seen without a smile on her face, Lucia is known around SOAR for her infectious energy. She’ll be working all summer to make the student experience at SOAR enriching, engaging, and informative.

  1. What was your SOAR experience like?

My SOAR experience was awkward and exciting – and I think that’s true for most people who come.

  1. What is your favorite thing about working for SOAR?

The energy of the students, especially the first-years, who come. Everyone is so excited, since they are really eager to start college. Plus, I get to meet fantastic people, which means a lot of small talk, which is actually one of my favorite things!

  1. What do you want to be when you grow up?

I don’t just want to, I KNOW I’m going to be a professor of International Development. Working for SOAR is a great preparation for that academic atmosphere.

  1. And for fun – what is your least favorite movie, and why?

Oh, that’s easy. Gremlins, because it’s terrifying and weird.
