Internship abroad: INTO City University London

INTO is an international education organization that runs foundation programs for international students that want to attend university in the UK. I worked with mostly with the marketing and academic support departments. My role allowed me to sit in on meetings with agents and recruiters from Indonesia and South Korea; recruit students and assisted in the production of filming new promotional videos for the website; post on the company’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages and wrote blogs for their website; and monitor student attendance to adhere to visa regulations.

Study abroad highlight: Studying abroad in London was the most rewarding experience of my life. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, introduced me to new people and ways of thinking, and led to an immense amount of personal and professional growth. The best parts of my time abroad were my internship, my roommates, and the endless opportunities to explore such a lively city. London is obviously filled with endless tourist attractions, but my favorite parts were off the beaten path and were also just day-to-day places that I passed through. There is something and somewhere for everyone in London, so it's easy for the city to quickly feel like home.
