Dana's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   I am interning at Allegro Private Equity in the Investment Analyst department as a finance intern.

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I am participating in the Augustana in Australia because I think it is an incredible experience I may not get to do again.  Not only do I get an internship experience in my major area, but I will get to explore Australia as well.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I hope to be a positive addition to my internship.  I tend to be a fast learner, so I think I can be an asset to Allegro. I look forward to being a team player, and helping wherever needed, particularly in research and data analysis.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I hope to learn more about equities specifically.  As a finance intern, I look forward to learning new research and data analysis techniques.  

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   I plan to travel to the Gold Coast and the Great Barrier Reef.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  I think the highlight will be snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef.
