Adelante Abroad Intern Updates

From time to time, we like to check in with our current candidates. If you’re wondering what an internship abroad is like, check out what they have to say!

Kinga F. (Intern in Madrid | Marketing/Special Events)

I just wanted to let you know that my first day at IFEMA was INCREDIBLE! I am so happy that everything worked out perfectly in the end. I’m sad that I only have four weeks left with them, but I am very excited for the rest of my time in Spain working there.

Rachel N. (Volunteer in Oaxaca | Non-Profit)

As I’ve come to learn in these 24+ hours, the advisories on the U.S. and Canadian websites, including their accompanying articles and the commentaries of many of its bloggers are disproportionate to the reality on the ground – or perhaps that is only in respect to Oaxaca (which lacked an advisory altogether).

In any case, I love everything here: my room, Sra. Irma y Octavio, the food and organic quality of its eggs and meats, etc.  Basically all is well.

In fact, in my first language class this morning, I have been moved up to an intermediary level, which was an enormous boost in morale.”

Christina C. (Intern in Barcelona | Political Science)

“Things are going very well! The weather is beautiful and I have met up with another university student working here as well are some students from Northeastern who are working in Madrid, but come to Barcelona to visit. Most of my free time is spent at the beach and going for runs along the Passeig de Gracia and other parts of the city.”

Katie A. (Intern in Chile | Medical/Healthcare)

“Everything’s been great so far! There were no problems with my flights here and I love my host family! I’m exploring a lot and really getting to know my surroundings.”

Hannah B. (Intern in Seville | TEFL)

Everything has been great. We are actually leaving for a trip to Morocco with discover excursions in a few hours! We really enjoyed the Spanish classes at Giralda Center; our teacher was great and I think we both feel more confident in using Spanish.

Laura H. (Intern in Chile | Healthcare/Medical)

“Everything is going well. I can’t believe my time here is already almost over! I really like my internship because my “mentor” has really been working hard to teach me things, which I appreciate. I was able to travel to Atacama last weekend, which was amazing!”

Jasmine B. (Intern in Madrid | Healthcare/Medical)

“I can’t believe I have such little time left, it all flew by so fast! My trip has been wonderful, full of great experiences and I truly loved every moment. Thank you so much for everything!”

Hannah E. (Intern in Seville | TEFL)

Everything is good here! I really enjoyed the Spanish class and liked my teacher at the Giralda Center. I am excited to start the internship Monday!
