Royal Holloway, University of London Hemingway Student Ambassador

Eugenia Ciuro is originally from Italy. She read The Old Man and the Sea in Italian when she was eight years old, and she still remembers feeling connected with the book. This connection is what led to her love of literature, books, and the idea of being part of another world built with words on paper that can change people’s lives. She is excited for the opportunity to be a student ambassador.
