This internship helped me discover not only what I wanted to do with my life, but also helped me grow and develop professionally that I would not have had the chance to back in the States. I worked for an integrated marketing agency, Carat, which provided me with the unique opportunity to learn skills such as media buying and planning, implementing marketing campaigns, and numerous other qualities. This wasn't an internship where I got coffee or filed papers - we were given tasks that were beneficial towards the daily activities and proceedings of the company as well as real-world experience. Furthermore, simply living in a new country provided an incredible opportunity to learn from a new culture, experience a more Asian themed culture than my Midwest background is used to as well as live in a gorgeous, friendly and beautiful city. This was easily the best decision of my life and I would study abroad with Arcadia again if given the chance.
