The World Intern
I am an intern for The World and a graduate student at Emerson College.
I work as a reporter for EdTech Times where I write about all things concerning education and technology -- and I love it. In 2011, I received a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature from Temple University where I continued indulging in my love for dusty books. In my two years off from school I wrote about the restaurant industry in Philadelphia, and wrote grants for a preservation society.
I am an avid podcast listener, live to learn, and enjoy a good story above all else.

It was Brazil's worst game in World Cup history, and it was hard to watch — except for Germans. But even the victorious fans were left speechless after the 7-1 drubbing.
