Central Otago reporter Sarah
Marquet is the first recipient of an Asia New Zealand
Foundation internship in South Korea.
Miss Marquet (26), of Clyde, will receive a $5000 grant to
work in South Korea for six weeks, starting in May. She will
be working at the Korea JoonAng Daily English language
newspaper in Seoul, and also filing stories for the ODT.
''I'm excited about the opportunity and very grateful to the
foundation for its assistance,'' she said.
''This is going to challenge me both professionally and
personally, which can only be a good thing. Any story ideas
or travel tips would be greatly appreciated.''
The foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to
building New Zealanders' knowledge and understanding of Asia.
