My junior year of high school, I found out about an amazing program through Indiana University. It’s called the Ernie Pyle Scholars program, and it offers special educational opportunities for a select group of journalism majors.
And among these opportunities include is a chance at a summer internship in London following your sophomore year. So, naturally, I set my sights high and would stop at nothing to become an Ernie Pyle Scholar, if only to have the chance to live in Europe for eight weeks of my life.
Little did I know that the trip to London would sneak up on me so quickly. And little did I know that the trip itself would fly by. And little did I know that I would be making memories that will last a lifetime.
