Asia is a second-year Journalism major and History minor at Northeastern University from Rome, Italy. Her interest in journalism was piqued at a young age by her grandfather who was a freelance travel journalist and author. Last May, Asia travelled to Greece and reported on how the economic crisis has prevented the excavation and preservation of antiquities. This experience cemented her interest in exploring stories with a cultural and historical intersection.
Asia was attracted to the Monitor because of its unique way of constructing a story to give its readers a global perspective. She hopes to deepen her analytical writing skills while working for the Monitor.
In her free time Asia enjoys painting jeans, reading classic Italian short stories and traveling.
