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.
