My first semester at the Eller College of Management is over and I am ready for Barcelona! Words can’t explain how excited I am to embark in this journey. I have never been out on my own before without the safety net of my parents or sister. I also have never been out of the country except for Mexico which is close to my home town. I can’t say that I am not nervous because I am but I can say that I am ready for what this internship has in store for me. There is so much to learn in a particular career that just cannot be taught in only a classroom. Studying abroad and interning in an organization will give me the opportunity to explore my career field in Marketing while gaining valuable skills and experience. I cannot believe in just a couple of days, I will be saying goodbye to my mom, sister, and boyfriend at the airport.
