Yes, I recommend this program

How living and working abroad changed my life.

My summer internship with New York IES Program was beyond incredible. Before the departure, I didn't know what to expect, but I knew inside of me that this experience was going to change my life forever. And it did. I got on the plane nervous, scared but excited for what was waiting for me. Without any doubt, I can say that I'm not the same person I was when I first arrived in New York. The challenges that I had to face everyday shaped me as a student and as a human being. At first, it was difficult to live in the Big Apple - so many things to figure out. But as time went by, I became more confident. The IES staff helped me every step of the way -they have been always available and supportive. I am and always will be profoundly grateful to them for giving me this incredible experience.The IES staff has played a crucial role in finding the perfect internship placement for me: as and Art Historian student, working in an Art Gallery in Soho was a dream come true! I couldn't think of a better place where I could have interned. The people who worked with me at the Gallery made me part of their team from the frist day, and taught me so much! They included me in all of the activities of an Art Gallery such as setting up a new exhibition, meeting the artists, cataloguing, working with social media, editing pictures, finding new contacts and so much more! I felt I was learning something new everyday. Living and working abroad changed my life and my perspective of the world we live in. I definitely recommend this experience to anyone who wants to follow their dreams and pursue their career goals - you won't regret it!
