My summer internship

After a very thorough interview with the internship advisor from TravelNstudy, highlighted by my needs and the area of interest, several options in financial field were presented to me! I made my final decision and agreed that the placement in one of the international banks in Poland will be the best for me. I was placed in Gdansk, in a city branch, and worked directly with my supervisor. Finally I had the opportunity to connect the relevancy of classroom studies to the real world! I was not surprised to see that economy in Poland is one of the strongest in EU and that the country was not hit by the economic crisis. The market is open for major investments from the European Union. About my internship and my life after work. The everyday work in Gdansk was pretty standard 8-5, with most weekends being off. I was able to contribute directly to the bank at which I interned. I worked with Polish interns from a business school in Gdansk and I spent most of my weekends with them on sightseeing, going to the beach, and going out at night (the city has fantastic bars and clubs). The Polish students seem to be very independent, well educated, one of them was fluent in three languages and just recently got accepted to London School of Economics. They were my guides, best companions, and made my overall stay really great and stress free. One weekend they surprised me and took me for a short trip to Berlin, Germany. I love traveling and seeing new places!
Great part of my internship were the visits to the capital of Poland! Twice a month I went with my boss to Warsaw to the main quarter for meetings! I must say I really enjoyed the experience! The morning rush, the busy life in Warsaw, the center of Europe, international environment, listening to my boss switching between Polish, English, and German, made a tremendous impact on me!
What did I gain in two months in Poland? Definitely confidence, independence, maturity and a mentoring from friendly people who just like me love finances and investments!

How can this program be improved?
I wish I got to meet the other Polish interns at least a week before the start of the formal internship. It would be helpful to know the city and the transportation system in advance. I am from a small town and the city of Gdansk, which is actually Tri-city Gdansk-Gdynia-Sopot is like New York or Washington, large, very vibrant, dominated by young people and families, and at the end pretty easy to navigate when you get to know it.

It's been an adventure to say the least

Thinking back to when it all began, I truly believe that this program has been a blessing in disguise. What was suppose to be a two month trip turned into something a little more permanent. This is the most rewarding journey I have been through. I have met amazing people, made great contacts and even landed a job teaching at an elementary school outside of Wroclaw. I have grew as a person, became more independent and so much more open-minded. Polish people inspire me and give me motivation. I look at these people and I see such hard workers, not only are they educated but most speak over three languages, if not more.
No words could express the opportunities that I have gained throughout this internship. Traveling and volunteering is the most precious gift that one could give himself. Looking back at where I started, I can say that I lived more in these past few years than I have in all of my lifetime. I thank TravelnStudy for helping me pursue my dreams in volunteering,teaching, and of course, traveling!
