DG Travelers: London Ladies

Jenner Smith, Katie Reichenbach, and Kelsey Merriam (NMC '09) are spending their semester abroad together in London, England. All three study journalism at Mizzou (Jenner and Kelsey are part of the broadcast sequence, while Katie is in the strategic communications sequence), and are roommates across the pond.

These ladies have been keeping busy taking two classes, working at their internships, and traveling to other European attractions most weekends.

Katie is currently interning as the public relations assistant to luxury fashion designer, Roland Mouret. Jenner is working for the NBC News London Bureau. Kelsey's internship is with Pilot Productions, which produces the travel series, Globe Trekker.

Jenner recently had the opportunity to interview many of today's film stars at the BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts), including Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe and The Help's, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer. A video of her work can be seen here:

Katie and Kelsey recently checked off one of their weekend destinations when they visited Paris. Their getaway was full of wonderful sites (the Eiffel Tower at night and the Louvre) and yummy foods ( Nutella and banana crepes and a breakfast pastry called "croque monsieur").

These ladies plan on making a St. Patrick's Day stop to Dublin, Ireland, a meet up with Katie Moore in Spain, and a trip to Italy.

While they are keeping very busy, all three still make time for blog updates! If you would like to learn and see more from their England travels, check out their blogs.
