Why Italia? I asked.
“I love the country and their soccer team.”
Ameer is the first person I met wearing Italian national team jersey. He comes from Saudi Arabia but is in love with all things Italian. He is in love with its history, people, soccer, culture and architecture. I thought he’s been to Italy many times but it turned out he’s never been. It is his dream to visit the Apennine Peninsula and he thinks it might happen next year. Ameer – who change the spelling of his name not to be confused with the popular fast food chain – currently studies science at McGill University and wants to become an M.D. Based on his enthusiasm for everything we talked about (soccer, photography, science and Italy) I’m sure he will.
