Kelsey's pre-trip thoughts

Internship:   Edge Custom Media - one of Australia's fastest growing small businesses.  They specialize in custom print media for businesses throughout Australia.  I will work with marketing, editing, and writing.

Why are you participating in the Augustana in Australia program?   I have always wanted to study abroad at Augustana.  As a business major, I could not think of a better program to participate in.  Not to mention it will be summer there!

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?  Whenever I take on a new project or internship I become extremely dedicated to what it is I am doing.  I will work hard on any project given to me.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?   I want to develop publishing skills and leave Sydney knowing whether this is a career path I want to take.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under"?   I will most definitely be traveling to New Zealand, Cairns, and every beach within reasonable distance from Sydney.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under"?  Learning a new lifestyle and working in a completely new environment - I know this experience will teach me about the type of person I am and who I can be.
