Madelyn’s Compilation: A Texan in Trastevere

My name is Madelyn (Madi) Unger, a 20 year old student of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I am graduating in December 2018 with a degree in Marketing. I am from Dallas, Texas, but I am studying abroad at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy for my spring 2017 semester. Traveling and indulging in the finer things in life is my mantra.

This e-portfolio is a display of the assignments I completed for a class taken during my spring  2017 semester at John Cabot University. The three assignment – a PSA script, a podcast script, and a press kit – gives insight on the ins and outs of Trastevere, Rome.

The girlfriend sits down at the bar to order another cosmopolitan when a jealous boyfriend is infuriated and barks at the bartender. Later, the reaction of the boyfriend turns into physical abuse after the couple leaves the bar while they are in their hotel elevator. The girlfriend pretends to call room service and really dials 9-1-1 for help.
