Dan's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Colourful Trips: A travel agency that works with groups and individuals as the finance intern.

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I am participating in the Augustana in Australia program because I want to gain experience with my internship and also learn to adapt to a new culture and lifestyle.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I hope that I am able to provide a valuable new perspective to Colourful Trips, while also using the knowledge and experience that I bring with to assist my internship site. With our broad-based business major, I feel well prepared academically for this internship.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I want to gain knowledge of the marketing industry, including how to use social media from a business standpoint.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   I hope to take trips to New Zealand and to the Great Barrier Reef.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  I look forward to surfing.
