The closer my departure to Barcelona comes, the more I find myself constantly thinking about how thrilled I am to have this opportunity. I can’t wait to experience all that this incredible city has to offer. I hope to further my Spanish speaking abilities in addition to learning all about business in Spain and Europe. As a political science major, business classes are not required; however, I believe that having knowledge of the business world is invaluable in any career. During my internship with the Centre for Cooperation in the Mediterranean (CCM), I’m expecting to gain work experience in the business world that is not offered in my field of study. I hope to better understand international business once my internship ends and bring that knowledge into my future career. I’m extremely excited to see what is store for me this summer in Spain and at my internship with the Centre for Cooperation in the Mediterranean!
