Peter's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   SalDoce Fine Foods/Brazilian Chamber of Commerce as finance intern

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I am participating in the program because I have wanted to intern in Sydney since I heard about the program during my first year. This program is unique in that it is an internship rather than classes. Plus, who wouldn't want to live in Australia?

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  Hopefully the classes I've taken at Augustana will benefit me. I believe that my experiences working as a team in football will be extremely helpful wherever I work.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I hope to learn if working in finance is actually something I want to follow for my career.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   I plan to travel everywhere I can. I want to visit Melbourne, New Zealand, and Fiji.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  Traveling around Australia and making some great memories with the other Augie students will be the highlight of my travels.
