Fibra, who brings more of a ’90s rap flow, can be considered one of the first major rappers in the country…

Dreams do come true. Since I was seven years old, I have visited Rome at least once a year. Rome is unlike any other city. To me, it is like an open-air museum or a big fancy living room that should only be crossed carefully, on tiptoes. I think that for someone who has never…

When I strolled through Trastevere for the first time, I was twelve years old. If you had asked me then if I could imagine studying there, I probably would have laughed – this city was like a museum for me, a monument for observing and adoring, not a city to live and study in. On my second…

Guests included counselors from Argentina, Austria, Colombia, Egypt, Italy, Morocco, Switzerland, and Ukraine, all of whom represent schools where students are seeking the global university…

I didn’t really know what a career in International Affairs meant until I started at John Cabot University. I was aware that I could either join the Foreign Service or a development non-profit, but I didn’t really know about other opportunities. After a few years at John Cabot, I began connecting with classmates who were interning…

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough. – Augustin “Og” Mandino I have lived by this quote throughout my high school experience. I have succeeded when others have doubted me or told me I was dreaming too big. But when it comes to my education, nothing is too big: I dreamed big,…
