Life Long Yinzer
Hi I am Adam McNeill, and I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I will be going to Italy to study fashion supply chains in May 2018 before my sophomore year. I am pursuing a degree in Industrial Engineering, and I am planning to pursue a minor in Bio-engineering. My favorite things are the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Steeler’s, and hip-hop/R&B music. I have a brother that is a year younger than me, and a sister Tori who is 6-years old. I play goalie for the Bio-Medical Engineering Society’s rec soccer team at Pitt. I also am the public heath lead for the Engineering Without Borders hydroponics project, which works alongside the Pitt Hydroponics Club that I am the head of Social Media and Inventory for.
Why Plus3 Italy?
I have always known that I want to visit and maybe one day live in Europe, so going to college I knew I wanted opportunities to study abroad. At my multiple visits to the University of Pittsburgh I decided Pitt was the place for me in part from listening to people present and Talk about Plus3. I have already been to Italy the summer after high-school, and I loved it so it was an easy decision to say yes when I was asked to study fashion supply chain in Italy. I can not wait to learn more about how Italy produces the highest quality fashion in the world, and learn more about the Italian Culture. I can not wait to be reconnected with my long lost love of Italian Food. Plus3 Italy will be a great time to catch up with all the delicious Pizza, Pasta, Sorbet, and Gelato I have been missing in my life.
