A famous quote states that “great achievements emerge from great opportunities.”
Whether it was hard-work, effort and dedication, an enormous coincidence of life, destiny itself, or something else, I feel very lucky for the fact that I was given a great opportunity for professional and personal growth.
I could not be more grateful to The Interngroup and The International Business Hub for having so much trust in my abilities, values and in me overall; I hope I can correspond by bringing great results to the table as well.
I am also thankful with the housing administration for paying close attention to the needs and wants of their residents and for keeping a detail-oriented approach to make the experience even better.
It is crucial to mention that I have felt very welcomed and well-treated by the vast majority of people that I’ve met so far here in Madrid, which have been very polite and friendly to me overall. I also hope they can get a positive impression of me in general terms.
I still have a couple of months left in this program, and I am hopeful that by the end of it I can look back and be proud of the professional and personal progress being achieved. Meanwhile, I also desire to explore much more of this wonderful city. Madrid’s prolific monuments, beautiful edifications, delicious food, fascinating landscapes, and unique culture are only some of the things that continue to amaze me every single day.
Going back to the quote from the beginning, I’m aware of the great opportunity I have right here and now as an intern, and I hope to advantage it to the greatest possible extent and be able to make great achievements and reach my goals.
