"During June-July of last summer I had the opportunity to intern in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic. The internship was presented to me at a study abroad fair my freshman year and was through a company called EUSA. I worked with a large corporate event company that did events in Prague but also in other European countries. Getting to know the Czech people in my office and learning the business culture in Europe was a challenge but was so rewarding. I made friends through my internship as we all lived in a dorm together and would travel with each other every weekend. During my time abroad I went to Budapest, Milan, Paris, Vienna, Munich, Dubrovnik, and more. Going abroad was the best thing I have ever done and was worth every penny. " -Danielle Dvorchak
