Mark Scialla ’13 was a high-school dropout who dreamed of being a foreign news correspondent when he enrolled in URI’s College of Continuing Education in Providence. He later transferred to the Kingston campus, where he worked as an editor for URI’s student newspaper and won an internship at the U.S. headquarters of the international news network Al Jazeera. The highlight of his internship: “What I learned from the team of experienced foreign journalists, people who have lived all over the world.” Today, Mark is realizing his dream with a fellowship at the investigative unit of Al Jazeera.
