Before I started my Dual-Study in Germany two years ago, I went on a world trip for 1.5 years and lived, traveled and worked in New Zealand, Australia and 7 other countries all over the world. Right when I started my studies in “Economic and Logistics”, I knew there was going to be a 6 month period, which would allow me to go to yet another country for an internship. It was my dream to come to the US, because it’s really hard to get another VISA, which would allow you to stay longer than 3 months.
After over 200 applications worldwide, I finally found an internship in Greenville, SC. I arrived at the beginning of May and started my internship a week later. Since then, I have experienced many interesting things and gained a lot of knowledge.
One of the first things which happened was a really big thing for our quite small company. At the end of May, Brigitte Zypries, the German Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy, came in for a visit to our office and warehouse with her big delegation and a news team. It was an exciting day and a special, once in a lifetime chance to be part of an event like this.
