What else would you like to tell our group about yourself?

My name is Kimberly and I am half Italian. My mother is from Italy. When I went to Italy when I was 19, I fell in love with everything about Italy, decided I would learn Italian and go back. So I did--I took two semesters of Italian at NOVA and spent the whole month of August with my aunts, uncles and cousins in Italy. That was the most amazing time of my life!

How did you learn about our group?

A friend found your meetup group and told me about it.

What is your favorite Italian book, author, film, song, musician, food and/or city?

Italian musicians I love: Giorgia, Il Volo, Jovanotti, Luca Dirisio, Pino Daniele, Laura Pausini, Nek, and so many more. Favorite films: Ciao Professore, Pane e Tulipani, Il Postino, Manuale D'Amore. Favorite foods: anything my aunts cook. Favorite pastry: Baba` au rum! Favorite Italian city: I can't pick just one! Naples, Pozzuoli, Procida, Florence, Rome...

At what level do you speak Italian and do you speak other languages?

Conversational Italian; I understand and speak a little Spanish.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?
