Umbra Alumna Now on TV!

Kylie Bearse, a Spring 2011 Umbra Institute Alumna, just began working for the Local News 8 team in Boulder, Colorado. During her time in Perugia, Kylie took advantage of Umbra’s internship program to work closely with the International Journalism Festival, which invites world-renowned journalists to come to the Umbrian city to give talks and workshop and is regularly attended by such names as Al Gore, Julian Assange, and Walter Vetroni (Italian politician and ex-mayor of Rome).

Kylie said that “a love and passion for traveling and experiencing other cultures propelled her to spend her last semester abroad in Perugia, Italy studying Italian, the Italian Media system and eating as much delicious Italian food as possible.” We knew she was destined for big things and couldn’t be happier — best of luck, Kylie!
