"My snapshot in America..."
Project: Urban Science
My Exchange: "On September 12th 2010, I arrived at 6:05 am in Detroit, Michigan. I was jetlagged but eagerly anticipating the beginning of my traineeship the next day."
My Role: "I worked for Urban Science, a global consulting firm, to develop and maintain web based analytical solutions in all sectors of the automotive."
My Challenges: "The workload & deadlines were the biggest challenges however, my competencies developed at an incredible rate. Being far from friends and family for an extended period of time was also tough. Skype can only get you so close to them."
Highlight: "TRAVEL. I was based in Detroit for 9 months and Los Angeles for 3. In between I travelled to Washington D.C.,San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas,San Diego and New York. Working in the U.S. has definitely opened my eyes to what is possible in life."
