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

I feel studying abroad is a great experience.  Having participated in the London internship program this summer the internship I had provided great experience.  (Plus I'm going to another country where it's their summer and dead of winter here :) ). Having more experience in the working world is sure to help when I get a full time job, even if the cultures and mannerisms are different.

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

I hope that I am able to help them with whatever project they may give me and add value to their organization while there.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?

I hope to learn how to use different systems that I can relate back to jobs here.  I hope to acquire good time management skills, and the workings of the working world.

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

I plan on going to the beach for sure! I also plan to visit New Zealand, and maybe play some trips by ear.  I want to see more of Australia than just Sydney, so I may make some trips throughout Australia as well.

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

Getting to live with Augie students I haven't met before and make friends and just have lots of fun. 

Anything Else?
