Sommer and Lindsey in Romania

Sommer and Lindsey are traveling to Romania for two weeks in summer 2009 to report on the status of orphanages, 20 years after the fall of communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.

Sommer ’08 graduated in December with degrees in journalism from Meadows School of the Arts and history from Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences. Lindsey is a senior marketing major in Cox School of Business and a photojournalist.

An update from Lindsey on their new site Romania Revisited:

Yesterday we accompanied Livada, a nonprofit based in Allen, Texas, as it held a day camp for children from a state-sponsored group home orphanage and then went to a Gypsy village for a similar program. Drastically different experiences.

We’re learning many new things and stayed up late last night to refocus and stay on track. Two weeks doesn’t seem like enough time to get everything done! Got to run now.
