We’re very excited to introduce and welcome our team of official bloggers and vloggers for fall 2021!
Each student will receive a grant accompanied by an explorer fund while they are abroad to help them generate their stories here on CAPA World. From pre-departure thoughts through their reflection upon their return home, we will watch the stories of these students unfold as they learn about their host country, explore and discover the real city beyond stereotypes and expectations, interact with locals, focus on their academics, and complete internships.
So, who are they and where are they going?

ANDREA (ANDY) ARIAS, BLOGGER
Andrea, who often goes by her nickname, Andy, is a theatre student at James Madison University. She is really excited for her CAPA internship with Synergy, through which she'll have the opportunity to work on theatre projects with prisoners, ex-prisoners, and others who are a part of the criminal justice system. Through her internship, she hopes to expand her knowledge on leading dialogue and guiding conversations. This will be her first time working alongside those who are a part of the criminal justice system, and she aims to take this opportunity to learn directly from them. She wants to hear their voices on what it is that they are seeking/having trouble with, and what their goals are during the development of the projects/creations they’ll be working on. Andrea also aims to create safe spaces, where trust is established, and she'll find ways to help, motivate, and uplift; all while recognizing the privilege she holds.
