This is the text (if you need help).

There is a job for people who love motorbikes, summer, and feeling the wind in their hair. The motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson wants eight interns to learn to ride its bikes and then ride them across the USA. It is to celebrate the 115th anniversary of the company. The successful people will get training and must share their experiences of riding around the USA on social media. They must also go to events, like anniversary celebrations.

Harley-Davidson's boss explained why his company is doing this. He said: "We're continuously working to grow the sport of motorcycling." He wants "a whole team of newly-trained enthusiasts" to share their stories. He said: "I'm looking forward to following their journeys [and] learning about their experiences." To apply, candidates must be good storytellers, use social media well, and be able to describe what freedom means.
