“Through this internship, I have learned how to “ask for answers.” Asking for answers isn’t as easy as I thought. I learned how to ask questions and how to ask the right questions. Asking colleagues and supervisors how things are done, asking for their career advice, asking experts and professionals for interviews, asking people about their experiences, and more importantly, asking myself what I can do to achieve my goals. At VOA, I was able to gain exposure to different forms of media. From translating international news to conducting interviews, I loved every part of it!”
