How would the journalism internship effect my life.
My name is Nikita, I'm 18. I have been working for an Internet-blog for teenagers, called “Pyat Uglov” (“Five Corners”) as a journalist and now I would like to apply for a journalism internship program. I enjoy journalism very much and consider it a way to meet interesting people, see as much as possible and, last but not least, make a living.
I am Russian, so English is not my native language. I want to improve my English by attending this program. Living in the U.S. for 2 months, working for a world-famous company, and seeing the absolutely different culture would, all together, give me such a great opportunity to turn my life upside down. And, as it was mentioned before, the best thing here is my English level improvement, which is unavoidable in an English-speaking environment.
Secondly, as everything else, journalism in Russia and in the States is very different. Not like the Russian one, with tons of censorship and other stuff like that, American journalism, as I have heard, almost isn't censored by the government and the laws. No need to say, I'm not talking about the swear words, but the things like the political articles, news from the White House, etc. It gives a great freedom, which is the most useful thing when you want to realize yourself in anything, such as writing. I'm going to explain it wider in the second essay. For instance, I had a sad moment when I wrote a really nice article but my editor declined it because it could have led us to a fine. The article was about an ecological situation in Saint-Petersburg, my hometown, when the ecology here was really terrible in some districts. Tons of garbage were laying on the streets after the celebrating of the New Year, which had caused many issues. And THIS was the article which my editor, although he liked it, couldn't add to the news block.
Thirdly, as I have mentioned before, I enjoy seeing new culture and meeting new interesting people....
