Maximiliane Kosychk, Political Correspondent for Deutsche Welle
"To me, the DW traineeship meant questioning everything again – from journalism itself, the media industry to my own strengths and weaknesses. Being critical of the phrase, 'This is how we've always done it,' and equally critical of what goes viral on the web. Making mistakes. Learning what journalistic responsibility means in an international team for an international audience. Taking a stance."
