Who I am? – Barbara the new PR Coordinator

If you have only once in your life the chance to do an practicum during your studies, you should take it immediately. The best way is to come to INTERNeX in Vancouver. After a difficult arrival, I finally made it (my eTA didn’t work and they almost wouldn’t let me fly). I am really curious about this unknown country. The first two days I was jet lagged. But now I am used to the nine-hour time difference.

To cut a long story short. My name is Barbara, I am 20 years old and do a dual degree study in Germany. My employer is the federal employment agency of Germany. I am living in the south of Germany more precisely in the federal state Bavaria.

What am I doing at home? In my free time I play the trombone at a brass band. Additionally I own a horse called Holiday. On the weekends I like to go hiking in the Bavarian mountains and in the winter months I go skiing very often. I live in a little village with my parents and my two sisters.

When they told me, that I have the opportunity to do an practicum abroad, my first thought was Canada. I did not believe that this would truly work, but now I am here. The first contact with Tim was great. He gave me the confirmation for the practicum very quick. I was really happy, that I could come to Vancouver. On the one hand I like to travel and see new places a lot. On the other I love the mountains. And Vancouver unites incredible mountains, the sea and the big city life.

For the next six weeks I will support the PR team of INTERNeX together with the other two new PR coordinators. I am very curious what awaits me.

I look forward to meeting you at tomorrows PuBNiGHT at the Yale!
