Marhaba! My name is Giovanna Albanese. I am part of the class of 2017, majoring in Communication with a concentration in Media Studies. I was born in Pittsburgh, PA but lived the majority of my life (5th grade-12th grade) in Doha, Qatar because of my dad’s job. I absolutely love traveling and experiencing different cultures, because I strongly believe that in order to better love God, we need to learn how to love our neighbors no matter what borders that would be crossing! I hope and pray that as you make the transition from living abroad to now living in America, that you would stand strong in the fact that Jesus is with you every step of the way! Welcome to Wheaton—we can’t wait to meet you and we’re so excited that you’re joining our community!
