My name is Girts and I was born in Latvia. Later I moved to Germany and after I started my studies in the Netherlands. I had a chance to do my internship abroad, despite that I was already studying abroad, and I wanted to do it outside Europe. My goal was to get an experience outside of Europe to learn other culture and China seemed as a great choice. Through my University I received information about China Global Connections. At first internship in China seemed something very hard to achieve and without them I would definitely not be able to achieve it. But Norbert and Fiona from China Global Connections helped me a lot and made it easy.
After a few interviews I accepted an offer of Business Development Assistant in an event organizing company in Chengdu. My main responsibility was to create proposals for the upcoming events. And I also got to visit all the events that we were organizing, which I think is a huge advantage.
I am very glad that I choose China and China Global Connections for my internship, because I received an exciting lifetime experience. And Chengdu was a good choice as well, I love the food here, the infrastructure is very well organized, and there are many interesting places to visit.
Overall, I would highly recommend Chengdu and of course China Global Connections if you want to experience China and receive the best professional support before and during your stay.
