“Hello, students of Marywood! My name is Alexa Dolce and I was born in Finland. My mom is from Finland and my dad is from New York. I speak Swedish with my mom and English with my dad.
I love Marywood and all the different people that go here. There is a huge variety of students and many interesting and awesome people that go here. I came to Marywood because of the great program for dietetics. My favorite nutrition classes are Medical Nutrition Therapy I and II. These classes give you a greater sense of what it is going to be like working as a health care professional. Both classes are challenging and interesting, and truly helped me prepare for my future as a dietitian.
There are no other “Swedish-speaking-Finns” that go here that I know of, but I was part of the Multicultural Club and it’s been great to meet other people that come from diverse backgrounds.”
