Officially halfway through my internship and have been in HK for 8 weeks!
Starting to get adapted socially more, but also realizing that people in HK always come in waves. People are from so many different countries, you just never know when you’ll see them next. HK is so much more culturally diverse and culturally accepting than the States. I always thought that because the States was the melting pot that we were the ones that are more culturally diverse. Apparently not. Most people here have lived in 4+ countries, speak 3+ languages and have attended international school.
Work is crazy and busy as always. Lots of emergency tasks to be done and lots of tedious work. Thankfully I haven’t had to stay too late at the office, usually until 6:30 or 7, which isn’t too bad for HK. Two other interns came in last week, so things got interesting around here as I had more people my age that I could interact with. I hope that my next 7 weeks at this internship, I will be able to get my hands on more projects and be able to be part of the driving force behind many of these ideas that go into our app!
