My name is Klara, 21 years old and I am from Germany. Currently I am studying Business-Engineering. I decided to go to Canada for the international experience and because I have a fascination for the country.
I found Internex through my university, since they have a collaboration. I am doing an internship here at the moment and I really like it! For my internship you need to be able to work independently and be open-minded as a person.
My first impression I got when I came here is that the airport looked nice but small and that Canada is absolutely beautiful. I still feel that way now. The PR-team organises events and activities and I think they are really good. I love the events and the girls do a very good job organizing everything! So I kind of attended nearly every event in the last 3 months.
What I like most is that Canada is just a beautiful, fascinating country with a lot of different attractions. The nature is stunning, especially Vancouver with the beaches, mountains and city centre!
A difficulty I had to face here is that I am living in Surrey, which is too far away from downtown Vancouver… but that is kinds of the only negative part about my entire stay here. The most memorable things for me are the hikes I did and the great people I’ve met.
Internex was helpful for me to give me a good orientation, good support and the events helped a lot to meet new people and to have a great time in Vancouver. I would definitely recommend it!
This experience definitely inspired me to travel more, but I don’t know where I will travel at the moment. When I get back in Germany the first thing I will do is eating bread and CHEESE! And meeting my boyfriend and family again!
