Dobry den, my name is Emily Gallo and I have the wonderful opportunity to intern with Business and Professional Women, Czech Republic this summer.
I am from Los Angeles, California in the United States and go to school at the University of California, Berkeley. I am going to be in my third year of studying political science and sociology, and following graduation I intend to continue my education with law school. Specifically, I study comparative politics, and I am very interested in our globalized world, and how different countries influence the businesses and policies of others.
The remarkable history and culture of Prague drew me to work in your city this summer, as well as my shared interest in gender equity that BPW strives for. I believe that the achievements of women have been overlooked throughout history, and BPW is able to shine a light on the power of women. Empowering and supporting women of all backgrounds is crucial, and the work of BPW across the globe works towards this mission.
I am looking forward to meeting the wonderful women who make up BPWCR and learning more about business in the Czech Republic. Dekuji!
