My month in Urbino has provided me with experiences I could have never imagined. Between the incredible group of professors and journalism professionals guiding our work, to the historic city itself, this time has been transformative. This program has grown my understanding of what it means to be a journalist, from the challenges of interviewing, to the impacts of my visual storytelling. It has also provided me with an amazing community that embraced a group of American students with open arms, and a love for Italy. I am already counting down the days until I get to come back! Thank you so much to everyone involved with making these last four weeks so rewarding, I can’t wait to come back to Urbino soon.
