Every month, Andiamo! seeks to represent our community in a positive way, but who are the people who represent Andiamo!?  The  hard work of our writers and contributors is what makes our publication a source of pride for Colorado’s Italian American community issue after issue, and it is a great pleasure to introduce them now to you… 

Jenna Capra

   Tiny Italian Flag Owner, Editor, & Publisher: Jenna Capra

A graduate of Colorado State University in 2007, Jenna began writing for Andiamo! shortly thereafter, combining her love of writing with her passion for her Italian American heritage.  Inspired by her father and large Italian family’s  stories of growing up in Italy and immigrating to the United States, it has always been a pleasure and an honor to learn and share the stories of others.  When the opportunity to step up as owner, editor, and publisher arose in 2011, Jenna took the leap in hopes of continuing the paper’s legacy for the Italian American community of Colorado and is determined to keep improving the publication for years to come.

   Tiny Italian Flag Contributing Writer: Jenna Peccia

Jenna Peccia is a Colorado native and a student at Regis University majoring in International Business.  She hopes to be a great fashion designer – the next Versace – after she graduates.  She is very quiet and shy, but she is slowly becoming more social – very slowly.  When Jenna’s not studying, she likes to read Archie Comics, play video games, watch Sailor Moon, and spend time with her amazing family.  She likes 80s and 90s music, especially Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, and  Backstreet Boys.  While Jenna doesn’t like writing papers for school, she loves writing for Andiamo!  because she meets new people and learns about her Italian heritage.

Robin Ferruggia

   Tiny Italian Flag Contributing Writer: Robin Ferruggia

 Robin is a professional environmental journalist and science writer who freelances for a variety of publications. With a master’s degree in journalism and a master’s level certificate in environmental policy from the University of Colorado in Boulder, she specializes in in-depth reporting on our relationships with wildlife.

 Robin also has a master’s degree in social work with an emphasis in community organization from the University of Utah and worked for the Legal Services Corporation there and served as a professional expert witness to the courts, but what she always wanted was to be a writer and work with animals.

 She has worked with Therapy Dogs, Inc., an international organization headquartered in Wyoming, and had two certified registered Therapy Dogs--Little Willie and Pup--who served in nursing homes and special education classes.

Robin's lifelong dream has been to create a magazine, which she is in the process of preparing to do by taking classes in Adobe publication software at Front Range Community College.  She plans to put a magazine, Connections, online, which will focus on our connections with the planet, wildlife, domestic animals, each other and ourselves.

She also enjoys photography, creating computer art, drawing, painting, and doing sculpture. She lives in Pinewood Springs--a mountain community near Rocky Mountain National Park--with her two dogs: Paiute, an Australian Shepherd, and Little Rascal, a Rat Terrier.

            Robin enjoys working for Andiamo! because it provides a connection to the Italian American community in Colorado, and because she enjoys the creative challenge of doing the articles.
