Education Abroad alum Daniella Iannuzzi ’19 will be this year’s Student Speaker at Undergraduate Commencement on Friday, May 10. Iannuzzi, a Finance major and Education minor, went abroad to Italy during her junior year, visiting ten countries across Europe.

Iannuzzi said her experience abroad directly inspired her speech. “My whole speech is about appreciating the little moments in life. I’ve always been a person to appreciate the little moments, and being abroad helped me realize that more,” she says. “When you look back, the little moments are actually the big moments. When I look back and think about my time abroad, everything that was amazing—things like spending time and laughing with my roommates—was a ‘little moment.’”
