With the launch of the new GoAbroad Internship Institute, the GoAbroad team is pleased to introduce you to the new faces who are working out of our Fort Collins, CO headquarters this summer. Over the coming week we will be featuring one-on-one interviews with each of our fabulous interns, providing some background on their role at GoAbroad and what they enjoy most about living in Colorado!
Today we sit down to learn more about Megan Ash, GoAbroad’s new Content Intern.
Tell us about yourself and your position at GoAbroad.
I’m a junior at Colorado State University with a double major in International Affairs and Spanish. I’m the content intern here at GoAbroad, meaning I write and edit content for the website. I also do some outreach to potential GoAbroad writers.
What is your favorite souvenir from your travels? Why/Where is it from?
I love all of my souvenirs because each one reminds me of a unique and special experience I had. But if I had to choose, I would say my bongos from Morocco. They’re ceramic with cool painted designs all over them. I had a blast haggling with the shopkeeper who sold them to me – he was so persistent!
Who would be your celebrity best friend, why?
James Roday who plays Shawn Spencer in Psych. Anyone who can make me laugh that hard is a friend of mine!
What is your favorite spanish saying/phrase? What does it mean?
My favorite Spanish phrase is probably “madre mia”. Directly translated it means “my mother” but it’s used to say “oh my goodness”.
What would be the title of your biography?
It’s a work in progress, I’ll let you know when I find out!
