A mere week after my 3-week-long trip to Bali, I was lucky enough to go on an all expenses paid trip to Prague for the annual 10-day Journalism Bootcamp scholarship. Organised by the Bakala Foundation, the scholarship brings together 20 journalism students from around the world and includes daily workshops and lectures, taught by some of the best professionals in the field.
I knew I would love it, but I didn’t realise just how much. It was actually one of the best experiences of my life. Not only was I lucky enough to be chosen for a prestigious program that has given my future career a huge boost, but I’ve made friends for life.
Outside of the lectures and workshops, I wanted nothing more than to sample the very best of what Prague has to offer, since there’s just so much to see and do in this beautiful city.
