AIDE Abroad - Internships in China
Meet Ateanna Uriri, AIDE Abroad alum in China
GO: What originally inspired you to intern in Shanghai with AIDE Abroad?
Ateanna: I was inspired to intern in Shanghai with AIDE Abroad simply because I wanted to try something new. I thought that traveling and interning in a place that I had little background information on would be exciting and my decision would not be biased because I did not know anyone who had gone to Shanghai. I picked AIDE Abroad because out of the companies offering international internships, AIDE was the most affordable and supportive.
GO: Describe your day to day activities as an intern in Shanghai, China.
Ateanna: My day to day activities varied from assisting the event coordinator with upcoming events to fundraise for the organization, researching information for cultural excursions for high school students, and helping the organization with everyday tasks.
GO: How has this experience impacted your future?
Ateanna: I believe this experience has cemented that fact that International Studies is the field I should be in and that this is something I want to do for as long as I can. Academically, it has given me real world experience that you cannot teach in the classroom. Personally, just being on my own trying and seeing new things has been rewarding.
