Taipei, The Central New Agency (CNA) announced Tuesday the names of three university students selected for internships overseas at media outlets in Washington, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta in August.
The students are Tsai Peng-min (???) from Shih Hsin University's Department of Journalism, Wu Sheng-hung (???) from Chinese Culture University's Department of Journalism and Chi Jo-yao (???) from National Taiwan University's Department of Foreign Languages and Literature.
Tsai, Wu and Chi will be heading to CNA's Washington bureau, Chinese-language newspaper Sin Chew Daily in Kuala Lumpur and Indonesian news agency Antara in Jakarta, respectively.
The students were selected from a shortlist of seven chosen earlier in June following the holding of "I'm an Overseas Correspondent" workshops in New Taipei May 5-6, Taichung May 19-20 and Kaohsiung May 26-27.
In his speech, CNA Chairman Liu Ka-shiang (???) said he hopes the internships will allow the students to experience something different to class work.
At the same time the students should keep an open mind, while remaining enthusiastic, curious and most important of all their desire to learn, Liu said.
CNA President Chang Jui-chang (???) congratulated the students selected for the overseas internships and also sent his best wishes to the four who were not selected, saying hopefully they will be part of the CNA team in the future.
Tsai, Wu and Chi are expected to return to Taiwan in September to deliver a presentation about their overseas internships.
