Two internships: A developed start-up & a new start-up

The time that I've spent in China has been honestly amazing and truly life changing. Although cliché, my approach to life professionally and personally has changed since coming to China. The things that I have experienced and saw, as well as doing, has changed my understanding of China and the people that live behind the closed red doors permanently. I now understand why Chinese businesses are growing quickly, and how most online-based companies are doing it. It involves personal and professional ethics that differs vastly from our American counterparts, albeit questionable by American and western standards, it is one of the main reasons for the accelerated global presence.

I have been exposed to an international team during my first internship that primarily focuses on social media marketing. We had one person from each major country (such as Russia, France, Italy, Singapore, Korea, America, and a lot more), and it was interesting to see how stark the differences were between everyone. Although it has been difficult, I had to learn how to communicate best with some of my co-workers because there were constant communication and expectation clashes. One of my most memorable experiences was my attempt to learn how to communicate better any Russian or French co-worker that I might have in the future. I learned the value of maintenance work for brands as well as branding/promotion, but I learned that this was not what I wanted to do in my future. Being able to learn what I want to do, and what I don’t like was my most important lesson from my first internship.

My second internship has been the most enriching experiences that I had during my time in China. I was able to check off a lot of my requirements and expectations of any internship experiences in China at my second company. I was able to use Mandarin on a regular basis and I was expected to carry out some tasks in the language as well, my mandarin understanding has improved tremendously. I learned so much about how to start a start-up as well as how to get funding from Chinese investors, and how some might experience their encounters with them. My boss was not only my mentor but he was also my friend as well, and has taught me so much about life and how to relate life to starting your own company. I have learned a lot from him, and about the current start-up environment.

I would love to come back and continue to learn more about how I can have a better future in this confusing country that still has its moments of absolute clarity.

Chengdu was amazing

Living and working in Chengdu was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had the pleasure of doing. The working and social environment is something I really warmed to very quickly and as a result I will definitely be going back to work there in the future.
I was fortunate to have very pleasant work colleagues & a comfortable working environment. That and the day to day living in Chengdu was very comfortable. There's always so much to do and see and even in 3 months I was only able to see a fraction of what I wanted because there is so much. The culture there was very interesting and this meant I never had a dull day.
I was also fortunate enough to make a lot of good friends out there who I made a lot of good memories with, both in Chengdu and travelling outside it.

I would recommend this experience to everyone.

Unforgettable

It was the first time I left my country. I traveled to the other side of the world, completely out of my comfort zone. Fortunately, I had the help of wonderful people of Bethel and ImmerQi. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, helping me when needed. The teachers and staff at Bethel were extremely patient with me because I couldn't speak Chinese and most of them didn't know English. It was not a problem, but a good challenge. A great experience.

I fell in love. The little ones are adorable and I had the opportunity to be part of their education and growth. They won't remember me, probably, but I'll never forget them. They became really important to me in a surprising way.

I was supposed to stay only three months, but I loved so much the work that I asked to stay more three months. And, if I had conditions, I would have stayed longer.

I met several people, from China and other countries, and made great friends. I'm grateful to everyone who took part in this wonderful moment of my life. Thank you all!

I can't wait to comeback to China and visit Bethel again.

Experience of a lifetime

With a scorching cup of coffee in one hand, I boarded a plane that would take me to an experience of a lifetime. My time in Chengdu went above and beyond all expectations that I had had. From day one, I was accepted into a group of people that would become family. A group of people that would guide me around the Sichuan province and show me all the beautiful things it has to offer.

Having worked all over the world, working alongside my colleagues in Chengdu was probably the most refreshing and valuable aspect of my internship. I have come to realize that the working culture is one that is unique to Chengdu alone. As opposed to looking purely at efficiency, I was taught that being in peace with oneself and to enjoy the moment came before efficiency. Along with laying a strong foundation with many big figures in the Chinese economy, the professional aspect of my Chengdu internship was definitely a fulfilling one.

My biggest regret is staying for the short time that I did. One month is simply not long enough to capture the essence and brilliance of Chengdu and all of its surroundings. Had I known before of all the wonderful people like Cassie Shu who would welcome me to Chengdu with open arms, a longer stay would have been a requisite. I will unquestionably head back one day. Back home now with a cup of tea in my hand, I can definitely reflect on how Chengdu has changed me as an individual and how it will continue to shape me throughout my life.
