Students Say...

Istanbul is beautiful, stimulating and welcoming. From it, I’m taking sunlight and the seaside, bottomless cups of tea, sunsets, and ferry commutes. But more importantly, I’m taking a newfound sense of patience, presence and drive for journalism. To be reporter in Istanbul is to drop into the middle of the action, and to feel like you were never anywhere else. Journalism is alive here, and people put trust in writers to tell their stories. This is what surprised me the most — the complete openness and welcoming that I experienced with every person I sat down to have a conversation with, even when we couldn’t speak the same language.
