Why I Chose to Come Back to Brno

I grew up the daughter of a Marine and had the opportunity to travel to twenty countries, more than half of the United States, and I lived in Okinawa, Japan for two and a half years. During this final Summer before I graduate in December I decided to intern with Foreigners.cz in Brno. I studied abroad last Summer in Brno for six weeks and in that time fell in love with the city, culture, and people. Through that experience I realized that I want to work and live outside of the United States after I graduate.
