Personal statement


I am Izabela, an enthusiast of Italian culture and foreign language music.
On my blog, Local Italian Enthusiast on Wordpress, I often post about news regarding Italian musicians, most of which I know have a following outside of Italy, which guarantees traffic to my blog.

As someone who loves radio and one day wishes to work in a radio station and as a lover of foreign language music, it often frustrates me that there isn't much diversity on mainstream radio stations, when it comes to the languages that the music played is in. To try and spread music of musicians who sing in their native language, I created a podcast series called No Translation Necessary where I interviewed several musicians who sing in their native language. I spoke with them about their careers and their music, to try and get their music out to audiences who might not necessarily come across their music.
