My last couple years of high school I had gone a little bit wild and I had this idea in my head that it was too conventional to go to university , so at the age of 17 I hopped on a plane, to my mother’s horror, and moved to Italy. I lived in Italy for a couple years, and France for a year and a half. — Ann O’Dea
