"My summer as a Peter Gzowski Intern with CBC Radio was a life changing experience. I learned a great deal about myself and about working with others. Many nuances of communication and team work, which I had previously taken for granted, suddenly became essential tools."
Frank Durnford
Memorial University

"I remember my first week, brimming with pride to be amongst so many smart, inspired broadcasters, and eager to get to work with my ideas. I believe that Peter would have wanted young people with lots of experiences to play a part in creating Canadian public radio."
Bethany Or
Trent University

"I have always wanted to work in radio, and it�s amazing that I had the chance to explore the medium in such a welcoming environment."
Lindsay Michael
McGill University

"I started out lacking any formal radio training, but in the end, I was able to create pieces that I didn�t think I was capable of making! Without people�s generosity and willingness to help, I wouldn�t have learned and excelled as much as I did."
Tiffany Chong
Simon Fraser University

"The Gzowski internship left me with tremendous respect for people who produce CBC radio. By the end of the summer, I knew that I wanted to keep telling stories creatively through sound, voice and music."
