I have had a great experience working at culture.pl. During my time here, it has been a pleasure to get to know my bosses, co-workers, and fellow interns. I feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity. While here I have really learned what it takes to run a successful social media site. I was in charge of culture.pl’s English language Twitter account. I used Buffer to plan out tweets weeks in advance. This was an eye-opening experience. Before this, I did not know how difficult it was to run a twitter account… All the tweets need to be perfect, they need to look uniform, and mistakes cannot be made. There was also a political aspect. I had to be extremely careful not to support anything controversial. This was actually very difficult in a different culture. I had to be extremely careful when I tweeted about the Warsaw uprising of 1944 or legendary director Roman Polanski. During my time here I have also been able to work on articles. I am currently working on an article on the street art of Krakow, Poland. I am given complete creative freedom to writing about something I am passionate about and interested in. Overall, I would like to come back and intern for culture in the future.
