[Here] you are an independent reporter working in a place filled with interesting people and amazing stories... this is something that not everyone can, or will do. This has definitely set me apart from my peers. I learned an incredible amount from our teachers who have worked as foreign correspondents for years for major publications.

Spending the past four weeks in Urbino has been an extremely rewarding and invaluable experience in many ways. Embracing Italy’s rich culture and building relationships with the community has made Urbino feel a bit more like home. The Urbino Project has truly benefited me as a journalist, as I’ve gained lifelong knowledge about writing, photography and videography. To each my professors, thank you for shaping me into an even better journalist. And to my new friends, I couldn’t imagine travelling on this journey without you guys. To have had the pleasure of being a part of this program is something I will forever be grateful for. With me, I will be taking lifelong memories, but my heart will remain here in Urbino.

The Istanbul Project was without doubt a learning experience. Having no prior multimedia experience, I knew I would have a challenging month, but I was surprised by how quickly I was able to pick up the new skills, and by how immediately I saw improvement in my photography. I learned about my own preferences and style as well, an understanding that I am sure will help me to make my next decisions regarding my education and career. The city of Istanbul is incredible, and I am sorry I do not have more time to spend here.

The weeks in Croatia proved to be a very rewarding experience – full of travel journalism lessons, new found friendships, and lifelong memories. This course had the perfect mentors and teachers to lead us around the history rich Country that remains a secret to most of America. Expecting to soak in the culture and take a laid back vacation, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of work and the amount of useful Journalism tips I’ll be able to bring home with me. I look forward to using this experience in my future as I search for a job in the journalism and media world.
