During my summer I had the opportunity to travel to Madrid, Spain. The excuse I gave to my parents was that I was going for an internship/seminar in the field of journalism, which is what I study. However, my time at Rooster GNN became much more than just an excuse to travel to Europe. Since the first day I got to interact with very influential people in the industry but it just got better every day. I learned so much from my mentors and got great feedback on my writing skills. Moreover, the seminar opened my eyes to new career paths I had never thought about, such as becoming international correspondent or a fixer. The course was only two hours a day, which allowed me to have plenty of time to visit the city and try local restaurants.
