The Tico Put Me On My Career Path
I really wanted to write something witty about my time at The Tico Times. However, I just wanted to let you all know that I loved my internship at the Tico. I feel as though I got to do so many different things, write in so many styles, travel around, interview interesting people and research some really interesting features.
It was the first time I have ever really enjoyed a job, and it put me on my career path for life: I recently got a job as a broadcast assistant at the BBC WorldService in London, in the Spanish Americas section, and I love it!
I feel that I owe the Tico a lot for where I am now! It was such a fantastic way to gain journalism experience rather than being in grotty old London (it may be a cool city, but it s wet, grey, expensive and miserable compared to Costa Rica!) And the experience was so much more exciting than anything I would have done on a local paper in London.
So thank you, it was exhausting but exhilarating, and for me, life-changing. Although I can t make it back this time, I will definitely be back in the future to visit and who knows what else!
In the meantime, rest assured that I am constantly reminding the Latin American department at work to write about Costa Rica (will not forget my beloved adopted country!) You ll see all the news on the webpage www.bbcmundo.com.
Many thanks and love to the whole team.
