Want to See Washington? Ask Monika To Show You

You know those American movies where the young intern tries to jumpstart her career by working for free, studying at a university, and trying to make money on the side?

Well, that’s me … at least that’s me in D.C. for the summer as an international.

I am what is called a young professional. My definition? Someone trying to figure out what the hell life is about and who thinks it’s a good idea to go from cheap Czech Republic to one of the most expensive cities in the U.S. for summer school and an unpaid internship.

Long story short, I have mostly been an international student. That is why I am reaching out to all of you. This is my invitation to you. I would love to share my summer journey in D.C. with you.

But I don’t want to bore you being one lunch away from selling my organs for food. Rather, I want to engage you in this little journey of mine.

I want you to have a hand in guiding me here in D.C. and the U.S. If it’s within my reach, I will go and see or do what you ask me to, and I’ll report right back to you with videos, pictures and articles.

I will be your eyes and ears here. I am ready to complete your missions whether it means going to a bureau and finding out what paperwork you need, or sampling a particular kind of food, or dancing with strangers on the street, or simply visiting a place you would like to see.

What I’m trying to say is your imagination has no boundaries here. (Except for my wallet, sorry).

Leave a comment here, on our Student Union FB page, and/or our SU Instagram, telling me where to go on and report back what it was like.

Participate in my summer in D.C.!

Also, my name is Monika.
