I was fortunate to have taken part in the ‘Journey’ program 2016 by the Bakala Foundation. For ten days, we twenty young journalists from the US, Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, UK, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Russia and the Ukraine resided in a mansion, overlooking Prague.
We had lectures from 9 AM to 9 PM – and usually some Czech beer afterwards. The teachers were highly trained journalists and writers, from Bloomberg Media, Wall Street Journal or CNN.
When it ended, we were all surprised how emotional it was. We grew quite close in such a short period of time.
My final story from the seminar is up online here: Between Hate and Nothing
