“As a journalism major, VOA is a remarkable place for me. Little did I know that there’s a place where 44 different languages are spoken daily in one building! Interning in the Public Relations Department has allowed me to explore our different language services. Through giving studio tours, I have met people from all walks of life, young and old, from many different places. So far, my favorite part of the internship has been meeting broadcasters like Americana reporter Ted Landphair
and sports reporter Sonny Young
. There’s a constant flow of activity in this building with shows broadcasting 24/7, and I enjoy watching shows go into production on the rare slow day at VOA. My internship at VOA is full of pleny of possibilites.”
