Interview with Amanda Knox (2022)

I have daydreamed about this interview for years. After working as a study abroad administrator and being one (if not the only) voice in international education who wrote about her arrest in Italy while on study abroad, I have always wanted to ask her about her time abroad.

Unlike most in the media, I did not want to interview Amanda about her unjust conviction by an Italian court for the heinous murder of her British roommate, who was also studying abroad. I simply wanted to ask her about WHY she chose study abroad, what she hoped it would add to her life and career, and so much more.

Finally, the day came. I interviewed Amanda and we had a delightful conversation about study abroad, culture, and language.  I hope you learn as much as I did from this incredible, resilient, and thoughtful woman.


Amanda Knox is an exoneree and journalist. Between 2007 and 2015, she spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn’t commit. Amanda hosts the podcast, Labyrinths, with her husband, Christopher Robinson. You can follow her work online:
