Locus Workspace Interns - Spring 2017
Meet Your Locus Workspace Interns!
Locus Workspace has new interns coming from the CIEE's CES program, or Central European Studies. It is a program for college students throughout the US to come to study in Prague for a semester and immerse themselves in the Czech culture. Most of the classes are centered around Czech history, architecture, politics, or language and taught in English through Charles University. The students also have a ton of additional opportunities to volunteer, intern, immersion trips including operas, ballets, museums, and excursions like Terezin, Kutna Hora, Plzen, or Cesky Krumlov.
This semester we count with 2 new interns! Keep reading to know some more about them :)

Why did you come to Prague? I'm here in Prague to study
abroad for the semester and fulfill my international business minor. I Chose this city over others because I heard great things about this beautiful old city in central Europe. History and architecture are both interests of mine so the city itself stood out. I also look forward to doing a lot of travel while I'm here so the central location is perfect. So far Prague has outdone my expectations in every way and I've really enjoyed learning about a new and different culture.
Why did you choose Locus? Locus stood out to me as a great place to intern because of the unique dynamic of a coworking space. I was intrigued by the idea of people from such different backgrounds coming together to form one workplace community and wanted to be a part of that. I like that I have the opportunity to help plans community events and bring the members of Locus together making work more enjoyable.
Fun Fact: I can walk on my hands - I am a club gymnast at Penn State and have been active in the sport for 16 years.

Why did you come to Prague? Prague seemed like the perfect fit to all my goals while going abroad. I wanted to study in a city, but one that felt smaller and more intimate than London or Paris. I also thought it would be a great plan to use as my home base while I traveled throughout Europe.
Why did you choose Locus? I’ve previously worked at a co-working space and loved the dynamic, entrepreneurial, and innovative spirit they seem to foster. That environment combined with a position that I’m hoping to revolve a career around seemed like a perfect fit.
Fun Fact: I love to surf.
