On the abroad aspect of interning abroad, I got to explore the crazy island continent that is Australia. Most of my time was spent in Sydney’s Central Business District which gives off serious vibes of New York with a fraction of the people. I spent a weekend in Melbourne, one of the more European cities, that’s what I was told at least, and splurged on delicious food and do not regret a single cent spent. I even got to take a small vacation from work and go to the tropical city of Cairns where their “winter” was a balmy 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This was such a packed vacation I barely had a any free time which was amazing. Our first day I went to a wildlife sanctuary and got to touch wallabies, kangaroos, see emus and other exotic animals in Australia. The following day I snorkelled in the Great Barrier where I had the pleasure of seeing a sea turtle and the scary moment of coming face to face with a reef shark. The end of that week was topped off with some well deserved quiet time on the beach where I got to bronze a little before settling back into my final week of work.
I can soundly say I learned so much this summer about myself, startups, and web designing. In the fall once career fair starts rolling around, I know I’ll have plenty of valuable concepts to mention to potential employers, and with classes I know how to be just a little bit more self driven. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and it would not have been possible with out LSA’s help so thank you for giving me this opportunity.
Here’s a final pic of me at my desk signing off:
