Reporting Abroad Experience

BY MEGAN NELSON

Before this trip, I had not taken into consideration the difficulties of being a journalist in foreign countries. It was much harder than I would have thought. 

Every culture works so differently that it is hard to adapt so quickly. For example, in Ireland everything moves at a much slower pace, so it was hard to get timely interviews. In London Elle and I encountered the problem that people would not e-mail us back for project ideas we had.  It was a good learning experience running into these problems, for I now appreciate the types of things I can accomplish easily once I am back in Arizona. In the U.S. people are more receptive to talking to American students than they were in Dublin, Paris and London.
