The cosmopolitan capital city of Prague offers a thriving and fascinating cultural scene. Ancient Gothic cathedrals and medieval streets are the backdrop to modern art galleries, avant-garde theater, ice bars, and music venues. Centrally located, the Czech Republic is a great gateway to Western and Eastern Europe. Berlin, Krakow, and Vienna are a train ride away as well as the Bohemia and Moravia regions.

Through my internship, I acquired a combination of hard and soft skills that will be useful to any future career or leadership opportunity I pursue. I developed valuable intercultural communication skills as I had to demonstrate clarity when communicating with my supervisors. I also further developed time management skills as I balanced school and met my internship deadlines. It was incredibly fulfilling to earn the respect of my colleagues and trust from my superiors that allowed me to work on more meaningful projects over time.
By far, the one accomplishment I am most excited to share with my friends and family is the fact that I was able to live with a Czech family for my semester in Prague. Though it was incredibly challenging the first few months, I'm happy to say I learned a lot from them as I improved my communication skills and received the gift of learning about Czech culture from them.
Reflecting on the people I met, the work I was able to produce, and what I learned, it's safe to say that I more than met my goals for my internship.
