My name is Anja and I’m an event management student from Sweden. I chose to have my three month long internship here at The North-West Passage, located in beautiful (and sunny!) San Diego, California.
As an intern, my tasks is to run the social media marketing for TNWP, which for example means that I will be the one posting in the blog you see on our website. I will also be running our Facebook, Instagram and much, much more!
The reason of why I wanted to have my internship in the U.S. is simple!
I wanted to challenge myself and get the experience of working abroad. When I realized I could combine my passion for traveling with an internship, nothing was going to stand in my way.
I believe that an internship here in the states is something more than a boost to my resume, it’s a life changing experience as well and I would encourage everyone who is thinking of either applying for a summer job or doing an internship to go for it! It will be the best thing you do.
Also, if you have any questions about the process to get here on a J-1 visa, or how the life in the U.S is, you can contact me by the e-mail address below ANYTIME (in both English or Swedish), and I will do my very best to help you!
All the best
PS: Follow our Instagram @tnwpassage, or my personal account that is @anjiz to see more about what the life here has to offer!
