Especially as a female, it was extremely important that I didn't get caught in any uncomfortable situations or associate too closely with people I wasn't well acquainted with. The story of Amanda Knox is devastating in so many ways, especially to the victim, Meredith Kercher, and her family.

I pray for the Kercher family and hope that no one else has to feel their pain. Please understand that living in a foreign country isn't always as glamorous as it seems. And as a female, I don't believe that we should live in fear but we should always live cautiously. Be aware of your surroundings and think of your safety above anything else.
With that said, POLIMODA STUDENTS ~ make sure you enjoy every aspect of living abroad in Florence! Go out, enjoy the scenes and go to restaurants to eat amazing food. Have fun at the bars and clubs...the Italian men will definitely be worth the outing!! Va bene!!
Enjoy....and be safe!
