Chapman University’s Department of World Languages and Cultures selected Amy Giraldo as Outstanding Italian Studies Minor.
A note from her professors: “Few words are not sufficient to describe Amy Giraldo. Not only she exemplifies academic commitment and rigor at the highest level, but she is also one of most intellectually courageous students that we have had the privilege of working with. During her studies in Italian, she went beyond the boundaries of the curriculum by succeeding at internship work, charting new ground with an individual study on modern Italian poetry, splendidly performing during an immersive travel class in Italy, and contributing directly to the wellbeing of the program’s community itself. Thank you, Amy, we will miss you, but we also know that you will continue doing amazing things in the years ahead!”
