Jala's Internship Study Abroad Trip

Hello All!

THERE IS STILL TIME TO DONATE!  I can accept donations until the middle of April.

My name is Jala Washington.  I am a sophomore at Ball State University studying both Journalism News and Spanish.

TV reporting and the Spanish language have been a passion of mine for many years now, and has only intensified throughout my college years.  Here at Ball State, I have been involved with a student run media organization called, "Rip or Rave".  With this event, a crew travels around to neighboring Universities to cover special events and report back to the campus community.  I have also served as an interviewer and reporter for other school sponsored events.

There is a wonderful opportunity before me to participate in a study abroad internship at a news station in Madrid, Spain for 8 weeks this summer!  As well as broadening my horizons, I would get to explore both of my fields of study while perfecting my Spanish speaking skills as I would be emerged in the Spanish culture.

An internship such as this one would greatly help me in my future career of reporting.  Not only will it allow for versatility; it would also provide me the opportunity to learn how to communicate with Spanish speaking individuals, as Spanish is a rapidly growing language in the United States.

While this is an opportunity of a life time, it is rather costly.  Nonetheless, I do not intend to let this stop me from pursuing my aspirations.

I ask that you all support my cause by making a donation so that I can experience this Internship opportunity in Spain this summer.  Any amount is greatly appreciated and will help!  Thank you so much, God bless!
