Not wanting to be one to receive souvenirs from places she has never been, Kelly Zegers has always been interested in traveling, reading adventure books and watching movies, television shows and YouTube videos about picking up and leaving. This reporting trip was her first time outside of the United States and she hopes it is the beginning of many more to come.
While in Bangalore she focused on a story about heritage structures and how some concerned citizens want them protected from the city’s widespread development. She also helped with a story on the water pollution issue. Kelly was rarely without a camera, snapping away in and around the colorful and complex city.
Kelly is a senior journalism and political science major from Long Island. She is interested in pursuing a career in web journalism.
