The hardest part of EiAbroad was leaving. The summer flew by, and though I know we will all reconvene sometime soon, it is just crazy that we were all thrown into this crazy new environment, and made it work. This experience definitely shaped me as a person, and helped me realize that I can handle new places, new people, and pretty much anything that gets thrown my way.
This internship is something that I will always remember for the rest of my life. It has given me the opportunity to expand my horizons, and reach further for my ultimate goal. I've made some life long friends and expanded my career network which will help me achieve a successful life and career. This experience was one of the greatest of my life.
It is hard to state what the EiAbroad experience is to me. This experience has changed me in multiple ways, from my outlook on the corporate world to my own self-confidence. Working in another country taught me life skills that I know I will value for the rest of my life. It taught me how to interact with others different from myself in a business environment. It taught me that relationships and the people you meet are just as important as the work you are doing. It helped me to re-evaluate what I want from the workforce and the environment I will someday be working in.
I feel like my internship experience was both challenging and engaging- I loved the fact that we were trusted in our new ideas and were able to take charge and make concrete and visible additions to the company.
The Experiences International experience means many things to me. For example, it means making new life-long friends, gaining new and valuable skills for work and life, forming new networks, seeing the world, and experiencing a new culture and way of life.
