Annabella Britt ’25 – IES Milan, Italy


My name is Annabella Britt, and I am a sophomore at Hope College, majoring in Business and Communication. I grew up originally in Somonauk, Il, a small town about an hour West of Chicago, but I am excited to experience a change of pace in Milan, Italy. Oh, and bring you guys along for the ride!

I caught the travel bug when I was young and experienced a two-week-long river cruise through Europe. I was set on returning abroad in love with the culture, newness, and beauty of the cities I visited. I chose Milan for a few reasons. One was due to my love of fashion, art, and film, which thrive within the city. Additionally, I wanted to travel somewhere I was yet to visit, and the chic nature of Milan caught my eye. While studying in Milan, I am excited to explore, see all I can, and capture long-lasting and cherishable memories. 

At Hope, I am involved in the Business Club, and I am in Greek Life (Kappa Beta Phi). I love opportunities to be creative and celebrate even the small things: through impromptu dance parties, movie nights, sushi dates, and beach trips. 

I am excited to dive deeper into Italian culture and share my experiences with you. Hope you all enjoy!
