In the Spring of 2017, while studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, I was given the opportunity to embark on a culinary tour of Italy. My Enrichment Grant made it possible for me to see both Rome and Florence, Italy, while experiencing incredible Mediterranean cuisine every step of the way. I originally applied for such a grant because Italy is a cultural and culinary epicenter, and I didn’t feel my time abroad would be complete without experiencing it!
Min Wang'21 is a history major and a minor in Art and Art history. She began this project out of interest in how the news media in China reported on protests in Hong Kong in 2019. During the study, she was inspired by life stories of Hong Kong based journalists and short documentaries made by global correspondents. These stories triggered her interest in journalism as a possible career pursuit.
