Matthias Wiegel has lived in, and managed the INTERNeX Staff house for one year and 9 months. Now it is time for Matt to move on and say goodbye!
Matt started as an INTERNeX candidate, he participated in the city placement program and worked at Blenz Coffee Shop.
Last year we did an expose with Matt an asked him what he likes the most about Canada;
Well it’s hard just to choose one thing so i’m not even going to try lol. I have been to so many incredible places in Canada some of my favorite places were Victoria where I went whale watching and that was breathtaking and really reminded me of the movie Free Willy. I also went to Whistler and did some snowboarding and then last but not least I loved Tofino where I went surfing. Everywhere I’ve been has truly been magnificent because i’ve been exposed to so many of the beautiful sites in Canada and i love all the nature I’ve been blessed to see.

After being the INTERNeX staff house manager for 1 year and 9 months Matt passed it on to Kathryn Campbell, who for sure will do a great job as well!
Matt wrote the following letter to thank everyone and tell how he experienced his time in the house;
I. Matthias Wiegel have lived in, and managed the INTERNeX staff house for one year and 9 month, and it was the experience of a life time.
The idea behind the staff house is to create an atmosphere, which gives young people a chance to meet new people, and exchange and learn together. The majority of tenants coming to our house are young and eager for an adventure. The house surely is not perfect or spotless, bit it has a character, like no other. People in the house are all fun loving people that like to party hard and have a good time. You never get bored, and especially for a house manager, like me, there is always something to do. Due to the fact, that the staff house is a very old house, I spend some fun times unclogging drains and toilets, as well as getting electrocuted by the stove. What did I learn from it? I know now, how to solve all these issues in less than 5 min without ruining my hair!
I hereby would like to thank everybody at INTERNeX, for this great time and opportunity!
You guys ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Matt, thank you for everything and the best of luck in the future! INTERNeX will miss you!
