Allegra Agata Tartaglia was born in New Orleans, LA. Her mother is a native New Orleanian and her father is native Italian from Campobasso, Italy. Since she was nine months old, Allegra resided in Italy; she then returned to the U.S. in 2009 to start College at Loyola University New Orleans. Overseas, Allegra had the opportunity to develop a love for languages, international living, arts, people, and culture. She has lived in Napoli, Roma, and currently, Vicenza, Italy. Her education began in the American Department of Defense Education Activity School System; then she attended the Italian middle school, and two years of Italian high school, “Liceo Linguistico.” Allegra is a 2013 Loyola University New Orleans Graduate. She has a B.A. in History and Minors in French and Medieval Studies. She loves community involvement and making a positive difference in society. She joined the International Society at Loyola, wanting to share and bridge her Italian culture with the Loyola Students and faculty. She has taught beginner and upper level Italian Language courses to professionals at the Italian American Cultural Center in New Orleans. She tutored Loyola Opera students in Italian diction, together with providing private Italian lessons to young and old. Her expertise in speaking four languages had led Allegra to specialize in providing interpretation services while also pursuing a career in international diplomacy.
