Audrey Adam

Intern

Hi, my name is Audrey Adam and I am a graduate student in journalism at Northeastern University.

I was born in Colmar, France, and I spend most of my life there. My culture is very important to me even though I love living in Boston. I did my undergrad at the University of Strasbourg, France. I majored in English and Spanish and minored in Portuguese and German. In France, journalism degrees are only at a graduate level, so I thought languages were a good asset to pursue my journalism career.

Before coming to Boston for my graduate degree, I did a year of master's in website creation and translation and another year at the College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, Mass., as a French teaching assistant.

At Northeastern, I mainly focused on video and investigative journalism and I am glad to be able to live the radio experience at The World.
