The World

Marissa Lorusso was a summer 2015 intern at PRI's The World.

I was summer intern at The World, and a student at American University's School of International Service. I'm pursuing my Master's in International Communication, focusing on intercultural relations.

Mostly, I like to learn about the interactions among culture, gender and language around the world. I also love hearing, telling  — and helping people tell! — great stories, which is what led me to fall in love with radio.

Outside of school and work, I spend most of my time running, writing music and planning my next road trip.
