This piece is part of a series that examines how students find themselves at New Paltz.

Immediately after graduating an Italian high school, Nadia Durigon, 24, decided to follow her lifelong dream and work as an entertainer on a cruise ship. She said working on the ship helped her to meet new people and to experience the world.

Three years later, Durigon decided to attend the University of Urbino in Italy, but eventually she chose to follow another dream and go to America.

Now, Durigon is studying Communications and Media as a foreign exchange student at the State University of New York at New Paltz. She enjoys her weekends traveling around the U.S., and she plans to leave résumés at businesses in New York in hopes of working in America in the future.
