AUDACIA Highlighted on German Talk Show

AUDACIA made a prominent appearance on the March 7 episode of Insight Germany. Insight Germany explores the unique perspectives of people who have gone to Germany to live and work. This episode featured Emma Willard School alumna Cynthia Barcomi ‘81, founder of the heralded Barcomi’s cafes. Talking about Emma, Barcomi shares, “It really was a place, I feel, made me the person who I am today.” Going on to talk about how Emma founded a movement, AUDACIA, the host proceeded to share a clip of the highlights video from the AUDACIA forum. As Barcomi shows, one girl has the opportunity to become a global leader of tomorrow, but to get there, she needs to be educated. Reference to AUDACIA starts at around the 19 minute mark, but the entire interview is delightful. Congratulations Cynthia Barcomi!
