Erin's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Anderson Events as a marketing intern

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I am participating in the program to gain internship experience in sports management while immersing into the culture of Australia.  

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I want to bring my background knowledge of event planning to the site. I would also like to apply the theory from my classes on the job.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I hope to learn to apply my marketing skills from class to the professional world and to see if this is what I want to do as a career path.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   I plan to travel to the Great Barrier Reef, the outback, and the Blue Mountains.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  Learning to surf at Surf Camp!
