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.
