Drury student Bre Legan to intern in India and Italy
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., May 26, 2016 — Students at Drury are continuously encouraged to gain a global perspective. To do this, many Drury students study abroad for a short term summer trip or an entire semester.
Drury junior, Bre Legan, from Conway, Mo., and graduate of Conway High School, has been accepted for a competitive internship program to Dharamsala, India with Cross-Cultural Solutions. Legan is a Graphic Design, Fine Arts, and Writing triple major, and she will serve as a Global Communications Intern for six weeks from June 25 to August 6 crafting video, photographs, and written narratives for their social media accounts.
“I think that there’s a lot of hesitancy for going abroad in general,” says Legan. “That’s why it is so important to correct false impressions we might have and show the world that we have more similarities than differences.”
After returning from India, Legan turns around to spend her junior year in Florence, Italy. She will leave August 24th to take classes at Santa Reparata International School of Art. After studying abroad for the year, she plans to backpack across Europe. While in Florence, she will complete a second internship for school credit.
“I hope to meet a variety of people from radically different backgrounds than mine, and learn not just about them but from them,” says Legan.
Legan will return to Drury her senior year to share her global experiences with the community.
