Day 10: VOA

My internship at VOA continues with an exciting day of actually being a part of the team! I sat in on the morning editorial meeting and actually filed a report! The story I did was on food security in South Sudan focusing on a new program launched by the US government to support communities affected by drought in the new country.  The program will provide 150,000 people in South Sudan with agricultural inputs and seeds along with training to improve their production and eradicate poverty.  The programs being undertaken are “green programs” and not only protective of, but also nurturing to the environment. I spend the weekend in New York and look forward to tasting the renowned street hotdogs and visiting the United Nations H/Q!!
