Weight In Mind Internship

This is my first internship experience, and I am very happy with it. Through this experience, I learnt a lot, including, communicating skills, self-directed working style. For a student who studies Biochemistry, normally I only work with numbers, elements and formulas, so it’s nice to work with actual human beings.The instructors provided me with full support and trust, they gave me a friendly working experience. During the internship, I produced a promotional video for a new product and few posters. I enjoyed this experience. It has a magic balance between overwhelming and challenging.

Amazing Virtual Experience

I had a fantastic virtual experience with Puentes Abroad with an agricultural consulting internship in Buenos Aires. Puentes staff and programming did a fantastic job with guest speakers, tours, and an all around comprehensive cultural dive into Argentina. In the internship itself, I had immense support from the Puentes team with many check-ins at the beginning, middle, and end of the internship. I was able to come away from the program with new skills, cultural experiences, and a fantastic summer.

What would you improve about this program?
Really wish it was in-person and that we could've traveled. Highly encourage all future participants to take advantage of it.

Puentes is Great!!

I loved my remote experience with Puentes Abroad!! The staff is phenomenal and provides support every step of the way. I also got the chance to intern at a great NGO and I'm extremely grateful for the experience! The workshops held allowed me to learn more about Argentina and learn important skills for the workplace that I'm sure I'll apply in my career. I had a one-on-one session with Maddy on international job curation that opened my eyes to all the opportunities out there for working abroad. I highly recommend Puentes Abroad to anyone looking for a global internship!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Despite being virtual, I got to try yerba mate which was a unique experience.
