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.
- What was your SOAR experience like?
My SOAR experience was awkward and exciting – and I think that’s true for most people who come.
- 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!
- 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.
- And for fun – what is your least favorite movie, and why?
Oh, that’s easy. Gremlins, because it’s terrifying and weird.
