I visited Prague in 2020 before the pandemic and completely fell in love with the city, but I never thought living and working here would ever be a reality for me. Two years later, I moved to Prague after spending a year studying in Denmark for the final year of my Masters in Journalism at Charles University. A friend of mine was completing an internship at Radio Prague International in a different language department, and encouraged me to apply with the English team. The rest is pretty much history! Working at RPI has opened so many doors for me and has allowed me to see the city of Prague through new, journalistic lenses. There are stories everywhere in this city, and if you stop and listen to the interesting people who live here, you’re bound to learn something new. The best thing about working at RPI is that every day is different and exciting. I could be at the office in Vinohrady in the morning, but head across the city to cover a sports event in the afternoon. I love to cover a range of topics from sports (especially ice hockey), to human interest stories about expats living in the city. While it can be difficult being away from my home city of Toronto, Canada, the people I have met along the way through working at RPI have made me feel right at home.
