Why did you come to Prague? Study Abroad and to learn about the history of Czech Republic!

Why did you come to Prague? I’m a huge history nerd and the history of the Czech Republic intrigued me unlike any other.

Why did you choose Locus? I chose Locus because I really wanted to work in a diverse environment with friendly people, as well as somewhere where I could be free to be creative.  

Fun Fact: I did not learn how to ride a bike until I was 18 in the summer before college.

Major(s): Media Studies

Why did you come to Prague? I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, meet new people, and travel Europe. Prague was the perfect location for everything 🙂

Why did you choose Locus? I chose Locus because I am interested in business management and it was a perfect opportunity to lean useful, business-relevant skills. I hope I can help develop and implement new tools to improve the space.

School: University of California, Santa Barbara

Major(s): Communications with minor in Philosophy

Why did you come to Prague? It is my final year at my home institution (UCSB) before graduating and I have been looking forward to studying in a foreign country since my first year of college. I decided to conduct my studies in Prague because of its unique historical background and rich cultural diversity.

Why did you choose Locus? Locus was the perfect option being a student abroad. I chose Locus specifically for an internship position but also because I can simultaneously work on my own studies in a pleasant environment. Locus was a no brainer decision.

Fun Fact: An interesting fact about myself is that I have never once in my life paid for a haircut because my mother is a hairdresser

School: Bryant University

Major(s): Marketing and Communications

Why did you come to Prague? Prague seemed so different from all of the Western European countries that I have previously visited, so I wanted to escape from my comfort zone and explore a beautiful city with such rich history.

Why did you choose Locus? I saw Locus as a unique opportunity to do something I love, social media, while getting to interact with such a diverse group of people every day. I love being in such a productive, creative space to do my work as well.

Fun Fact: This is my third time to Europe (and so far my favorite!☺).
