Eager to explore new avenues in the world of Journalism, I applied for VIN’s internship program in Journalism. Although I was a bit sceptical at first, I decided to give this organization the benefit of the doubt. And boy am I glad I did, for I what I had been exposed to during the entire program, was immeasurably worthwhile. My stint as a Journalist intern was beyond fun and beneficial. In a country, where diversity abounds and where there are so many issues to think and write about, I got to learn first-hand the challenges of a real journalist….and VIN has so perfectly executed the entire program. Plus I loved the fact that we were allowed to create our own sense of timing and planning; and on top of that we had an independent way of working. Furthermore, the entire program was structured in a way that it was flexible and tailored to our needs and requirements. All in all, I am utterly satisfied and I wish that my stay with VIN could be extended, for what I have learned through interviewing different sorts of people and exploring various issues is truly remarkable; and I am truly saddened to leave VIN.
