“Interning at VOA is one of the best experiences I have had in the U.S. It has helped me greatly in understanding U.S. culture and has given me valuable insight into journalism and public relations. I attend daily editorial meetings where I have the chance to hear department heads analyze current events and learn about events happening around the globe. One of the most exciting things I do is lead studio tours, where I get the chance to meet people of all ages from the across the country. Interning at VOA is an amazing experience you don’t want to miss!”
