Hello, fellow world travelers! My name is Maria Meluso and I am a writer, editor, tutor, and university student with a bad case of wanderlust.
Right now, I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Professional Writing and minors in Screenwriting and Creative Writing. I currently serve as Associate Editor of my school’s undergraduate research journal, LOGOS, staff reporter for the student newspaper on campus, The Standard, a writing consultant at the Writing Center at the Meyer Library, and a marketing assistant for the student union. When I do have a spare moment, I am usually working on my first film and a web series I’m collaborating with a dear friend on.
As the daughter of Italian immigrants, I love the rich history and culture I come from. I’ve always been drawn to stories, to the things that connect us and distinguish us as human beings navigating this vast world together.
It has always been my dream to travel, particularly across Europe. This summer, I have been granted the unique and exciting opportunity to live a longtime dream of mine and travel to Ireland for a study abroad experience. I will be taking classes, seeing sights, and most importantly, hearing people’s stories and learning about the culture.
I will be posting updates from my trip as well as recipes, photos, stories, tips, and other fun travel things I encounter.
