Beth-Ann Kozlovich

It's tough not to appreciate the Millenial drive for balance and experience not dependent on money, and I share the perception that life is a learning lab. Hey, I work for public radio, remember?

2013-03-25-EN_blog_international_spotlight_02.pngAfter returning to Canada in autumn of 2011, the competition was staggering. I quickly lowered my standards. I applied for non-paid internships.
