My GlobaLinks Intern Family

Image

Moving to a foreign country for 10 weeks can be tough for a variety of reasons. Having a group of people surrounding you during the process makes it a whole lot easier. When I arrived in Los Angeles to board my international flight I met most of the other GlobaLinks interns. If I didn’t meet them there, I met them in Cairns during the orientation program. They are all great people, from a range of different places, doing a range of different things while in Australia. I thought it would be interesting to list all the interns, where they come from and what they’re doing here. Enjoy!

So far, I have really enjoyed getting to know all the other interns. They are all very different but easy to get along with. I am super pumped about the diversity of our group because we not only get to learn about Aussie culture but we’re learning about each others cultures within the US (and Canada!). I can’t wait to learn more about each intern as the weeks pass here in Sydney! G’day for now, mates!
