Journalism’s great if you’re up for adventures, which are never in short supply in Guanacaste. As a reporting intern for The Voice of Guanacaste (VoG), I spent two months shuttling between Nosara, Tamarindo, Samara and Nicoya. As a graduate student studying international journalism at Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in New York City, I was required to intern in a newsroom during June and July. It was valuable to learn how a local newsroom outside my own country tackles news gathering, and how VoG maintains a sustainable business model as a media nonprofit. My skills were tested as I faced new ethical considerations around responsible translation and cross-cultural reporting. My local news coverage grew to include municipal meetings, special education, Nicaraguan refugees and beyond, with food news in between.

I’m grateful for the colleagues I had the pleasure of working with, who doubled as my ambassadors to Nicoya’s karaoke and patacones.

Every source had something to teach me, too. Many were patient with my Spanish when my vocabulary lagged behind my sincerity to speak. As with any story, each challenge I faced — from language barriers to mosquitos — helped me grow.Sarah Matusek, Intern from Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, June and July 2018.
