On Top of the World at Voice of America

By Dean’s Intern Andriana Gregovic at Voice of America

Andriana GregovicMy time at Voice of America has been great! The employees I work with are so kind and helpful, and I know I can always go to them if I have a question or need help on anything. In fact, everyone I’ve met at VOA has been amazing, and they all make sure the other interns and I are getting the most out of our internship.

One day early on in the semester, one of the employees I work with, Damir, took me and the other interns I work with up to the roof of VOA, where certain language services broadcast from. He explained a lot of the history of VOA, and told stories about watching people fill in the streets for the inaugurations of both Obama and Trump (the building VOA is in has a perfect view of the Capitol Building and a lot of employees went to the roof to watch the inaugurations). Damir didn’t have to take the time out of his day to show us this part of Voice of America, especially since it had little to do with our daily tasks of video editing and headline writing, but he did. It helped bring the interns and I into VOA’s world a little more, and made us feel more connected to the organization we worked for (and, we got some awesome pictures!).View of Capitol

I’m so glad I have the opportunity to intern at such a historical and welcoming organization, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of my time here holds!
