I am a third year Communications student from Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. I love learning about new cultures, and discovering what the world is like from different perspectives. I have recently completed a student exchange program in the United Kingdom, and rediscovered a keen interest for traveling and meeting new people through that experience. I have always had a strong passion for reading and writing, which is why I hope to pursue a Masters in publishing in the near future. I am particularly excited by the new opportunities that digital media platforms are providing for the world of communications. I find myself fascinated by the immersive potential that they bear, as well as by the infinite possibilities that are yet to arrive in the world of interactive communications. Salzburg Academy's Global Media Seminar will provide an exceptional opportunity for both my peers and myself, as it is a crucial part of our professional formation to learn about the diverse views on the contemporary media's social implications. I am very excited to explore what this new challenge has to offer, and to see what new projects we come up with as a result of what is sure to be an extraordinary set of forthcoming weeks.

He is a weary traveller who has spent countless days trying to find transportation to reach his destination. While en route, he falls asleep and is visited from travelers from past and present journeys of who had boarded this particular train. The first visitor is Alexander Hamilton; a migrant from the Caribbean who traveled to the United States in the 1800's. He recounts his experience of traveling to a new country and achieving his dream of creating something that would outlive him. The second visitors are Art and Vladek Spiegelman; a father and son who share their story of how they migrated to a new country after the Holocaust events of World War II and their struggles of adapting into the culture of a new nation. The last visitor is a woman who comes from the Middle East who arrived in Vienna a year ago. She tells her story about the journey she experienced to reach her new home as well as the issues she's experiences now as an outcast from a land that she's still not fully settled into yet.google_maps2016-07-28T10:12:36-07:0048.210279, 16.370418Sangita Shresthova497a02d289c277275bc5ece441097deedf8135e7
