A life-changing part of the college experience for the average Jumbo is the semester or year abroad. With the many opportunities offered by Tufts Programs Abroad, students dive head first into new languages, cultures and adventures. This semester while studying in Chile, Nina Arazoza, A13, took a stab at journalism by writing for the Santiago Times, the first English-language online newspaper in Chile and premiere English-language online periodical in the country. Her writing covers everything from new legislation to art and culture fairs:
This weekend marks the final days of the 38th Annual International Showcase of Traditional Crafts in Chile’s capital. For the past two weeks, over 130 artisan workers have set up camp in the Parque Bicentenario in Santiago’s upscale borough of Vitacura […] The showcase offers a variety of artisanal crafts and religious goods including textiles, woodwork, ceramics, copper, silver and gold jewelry, baskets of all kinds and more from across Chile and over 15 nations. Kenya, India, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Haiti and Guatemala are among the countries represented at the fair.
Last semester, Dana Burton, Amira Mattison, and Chelsea Trunk, all A12, also sunk their teeth into journalism… in Spain. They created a video recording their favorite places to eat in Madrid. You’ve been warned: watching may induce extreme hunger and jealousy! If Spanish isn’t one of the languages in your repertoire, just note that in Horno de Pastelleria America, they make truffles that are the size of your fist!
