Elyria City School District

Sofia Fioravanti hails from the quaint, picturesque town of Lake Como, Italy. As a youngster, it was her dream to travel and study abroad in America. At 18 years old, and without knowing one word of English, Sofia boarded a plane and took her first flight ever across the Atlantic to the United States. Her final destination would be Elyria, Ohio, where she would enroll as a senior at  Elyria High School through a foreign exchange student program. Sofia said while at EHS this school year, she's had the full "American high school experience." And what did she make of it? You'll just have to listen to this episode of Petey Podcast to find out!  Get comfortable and settle in for this interview with Sofia--she's a delight and you won't be disappointed! (Since this interview was recorded in early May,  Sofia graduated from Elyria High School with the Class of 2023. She will return to Italy in June to pick up where she left off with her Italian studies as a fifth year Science High School student.)

It's a great day to be a Pioneer! Thanks for listening. Find Elyria Schools on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube!
