Jasmine is a born-and-raised second-generation Canadian on the Western part of Canada in Edmonton, Alberta. She studied Italian and Pharmacy at the University of Alberta and practiced for one year after graduating before hanging up her dispensing jacket and picking up her suitcases (and a one-way ticket to Italy). Jasmine moved to the beautiful city of Bergamo in Northern Italy in December 2013 for the age-old reason of love (her fiancé Massi is a born-and-raised bergamasco!) and at the ripe old age of 26. She, like every expat, is currently a self-proclaimed blogger and private conversational English teacher. In her spare time, she reads, paints, and writes about Italy.
