“I love interning at VOA because every day brings a unique experience. A typical day could mean answering phones one moment and welcoming visitors from Haiti the next. During my internship, I have not only sharpened my communication and organizational skills but also encountered fascinating people. I remember meeting and photographing the Prime Minister of Somalia and welcoming high school students from across the country. Interning at VOA has been a once in a lifetime experience that I am sure all students would enjoy.”
Mary interned in the Public Relations department and studies English at Georgetown University. She began interning with VOA because she is interested in journalism and loves working with the public.
