Kyana Waters Studies Spanish Radio in Spain

International studies major and music minor Kyana Waters, C'2017, is spending her summer studying Spanish radio and podcasting in Seville, Spain. Part of the College's CIEE initiative, Waters is comparing Spanish and English radio, interviewing locals and recording her own podcasts.

Immersing herself in the culture, Waters currently lives with a family in the center of Seville while she takes a Spanish class and participates in weekly CIEE-sponsored activities with Spaniards. She has already traveled to Cordoba, Barcelona and Cadiz, and hopes to do independent travel.

By the end of her trip, Waters estimates she will have traveled to at least five or six cities in and outside of Spain. Following her travels in June, she plans to work with Team of Stars summer camp, a nonprofit musical theater camp for select middle school students in Montgomery County, Maryland.
