Laura's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Vibewire Youth Inc. in business management.

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   To get an international experience in business.  For the internship itself as well as to experience a new culture and way of life. 

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  I am a well organized person who pays attention to detail.  I love producing a refined, well put together product and would really like to be able to apply those skills to help Vibewire maximize the reach of their youth programs.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I am really looking to pursue this type of opportunity for a long-term career.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   All over Sydney!  Also, the Great Barrier Reef and the Gold Coast.  I plan to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and visit wine country.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  Life in a large international city.
