Washington, D.C. Program
"Interning at NPR gave me the chance to work alongside
professional journalists. Working at the Social Media Desk, I was
at the forefront of how new technologies are shaping journalism.
The entire DC experience helped me build a strong base of friends,
connections and colleagues."
