Wishing to step out of my comfort zone, in the previous winter semester break, I went to London for an oversea internship placement and was pleasantly surprised by how much I gained personally from this experience. The company that I worked for is called TradeX Capital Limited, it is a consultancy company specialised in financial services. After working for a month, I have grown to be more independent and thoughtful. My supervisor and his team were extremely welcoming, they gave me opportunities to participate in different tasks and company events and taught me the ground realities of the property and financial industry. Apart from drafting documents and working on agreements, I have also gained lots of inspirations by attending the investment presentations, in which entrepreneurs presented their business ideas, hoping to raise capital for their companies. Finishing this internship, I am walking away with many new skills and knowledge that will help me in my future career. I ended up learning a lot more than I thought I would be able to in the time span, and so many things that went far beyond the theoretical knowledge I gained in university. The tasks I performed during my internship allowed me to apply my university learning in a real-world environment and I managed to develop my interpersonal and problem-solving skills.
