Why are you participating in the "Augustana in Australia" program?

I have always wanted to go to Australia and think this would be a very good opportunity for me. It will be an awesome experience to be able to learn about a different culture as well as being able to have an internship in another country.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?

 I hope that I can provide the company I intern with a different perspective and offer help with whatever they need.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?

I hope to learn everything that I will need to know for a future career in business management. I hope to the learn the day to day tasks that are performed as well as the obstacles that must be overcome when having a management career.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under?"

Everywhere I can. I really want to spend my time really getting to know Sydney inside and out. However, there are obviously a few different places I'd like to visit while in Australia. I definately want to see the outback, the great barrier reef, the sydney opera house, the rainforest, the blue mountains and possibly New Zealand.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under?"

I really hope I get to intern with a good company that I will learn alot from. I also hope to meet some really cool people that can show me how the Australian culture really is.

Anything Else?

Can't wait! So excited!
