I had no idea what to expect signing up for ieiMedia’s program in Urbino. I had no idea I would form close bonds with cafe and restaurant owners within a matter of four weeks. I had no idea how much of an impact this city would have on my self-growth. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity this program offered me and many other colleagues of mine. I worked with professionals that challenged me, but strengthened my journalistic skills. The bonds I formed and the experiences I had will be strongly cherished. As grateful as I am for the excess amount of wine and gelato I had, I will be forever grateful for this once in a lifetime experience.
