API Students Getting Pub…

We’ve been fortunate to read and share many great stories from our students who are currently studying abroad, as well as from our alumni and staff. Several of these FAPIs (Friends of API) have gone on to be featured/published on other sites and travel blogs.

Here is just a sampling of these..

Makena in Buenos Aires - World Cup time

Kathleen's Hungarian Vineyard

  • Kathleen Karika (API Budapest student) has graciously shared with us her Hungarian family (and their vineyard! – what?!) as well as personal stories through her blog. Kathleen was also interviewed by the website Go Overseas.
  • API Tuscania Peer Mentor Gabrielle Langman has been featured on the woman’s travel site Pink Pangea and is soon to be featured on the NAFSA (Association of International Educators) blog.
  • Gillian Gurish (API Florence spring 2010) has a wonderful foodie take on her time in Florence, and has been published on the Foodbuzz blog. She currently blogs for her home Converse College.

For those who are truly interested in taking their creative skills to the next level, API offers the budding travel writer/photographer/journalist/blogger the opportunity to learn from travel industry professionals through the MatadorU program. In addition to the innovative curriculum, participants have amazing networking opportunities, and access to internship and job postings. API students receive a substantial discount on the program, and there are also scholarships available. API Paris Peer Mentor Nicole Brownstein has begun the travel photography program, which she feels will only enhance her mouth-watering foodie blog.


So props to the FAPIs spreading the study abroad love on the intertubes – we love reading about your experiences!
