Kyra Nelson


Kyra Nelson, born in 1998 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, pursued her academic journey at the University of New Hampshire, where she earned BA degrees in Communication and Italian Studies, graduating Cum Laude and as a member of the Lambda Pi Eta Communication Honor Society. Her studies centred on classical antiquity, language, literature, art, and architecture.

Kyra began her undergraduate studies focusing on ancient scholars' theories of classical rhetoric and oratory within her communication major. Her fascination with antiquity and language led her to take on a second major in Italian Studies. This academic pursuit took her to John Cabot University in Rome, Italy, in the spring of 2019. Immersive courses in language and history during this time not only improved her proficiency in Italian but also deepened her passion for cultural exploration.

Kyra's academic excellence was showcased when she was invited to present her original essay, "A Narrative of Antiquity," at the University of New Hampshire’s Undergraduate Research Conference. In this work, she meticulously examined the shift from ecclesiastic to secular power in late medieval and early Renaissance Italy, providing a nuanced perspective on its role in reshaping cultural and societal structures.

Professionally, Kyra gained valuable experience as a Communications Professional at Mass General Brigham in Boston, MA. She worked on various projects supporting the HR Communications and Employee Programs teams, and individually developed a comprehensive communication plan and written materials to promote the employee intranet, Ask myHR.

Kyra believes that writing shapes the world and our perception of it. She holds that giving life to history through language can inspire curiosity and foster understanding of the complexities of the individual within a collective world. In her personal life, she enjoys visiting museums, walking in nature, and creating art.

Her specialties include:

• Italian Medieval & Renaissance Studies

• Art, Architecture, Literature, and Ancient Technologies

• Greco-Roman Antiquity

• Classical Rhetorical Theory
